Milo of Croton
Milo was a very successful wrestler and was a legend in his own right thanks to his incredible strength. It was said that the man ate over 20 pounds of meat a day! However, his showoff attitude ultimately lead to his death. The story goes that the man came across a tree that had started to split in two, and in an attempt to show off his strength once again, he tried to pry it apart with his hands. He got stuck, and then came along a pack of hungry wolves.
