You can e-mail me at The 2004 Athens Olympics Boxer Nick Casal turns pro .... last updated 3-28-04 (from "Casal turns pro, signs with Finkel" By TIM GRAHAM Buffalo News 3/27/2004) Boxer Nick Casal dreamed of winning an Olympic gold medal from the time he was a child growing up in Niagara Falls. Now, an injury has forced him to abandon that dream and turn professional. IN January of 2004, Casal was hurt durring the U.S. National Championships, and will not be able to make the Olympic team. Instead 18-year-old Junior Welterweight turned professional in March, signing a multi year contract with manager Shelly Finkel. Durring a sucessful amateur career, Casal won the 2002 National Junior Olympics the 2003 "under 19" World Chamtpionship and several New York State Golden Gloves Tiltles. None of the Buffalo/Rochester area sailors managed to qualify for the 2004 Olympics in recent trials at Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Houston, Texas. In Florida the weekend of 3-21-4, Kathleen Tocke and Jodie Swanson finished 4th in the Yngling Class and 5th in the European Class respectively. Both are members of the storied Buffalo Canoe Club. Also missing the cut were Cory Sertl of Rochester who was a member of Jodie Swanson's crew, and Kurt Taulbee of Williamsville, who finished 12th in the Laser Class last November in Houston.

    OLYMPIC HISTORY Shooting had a friend in the highest of places when the Modern Olympic Games opened in Athens in 1896. None other, in fact, than Pierre de Coubertin, who was a pistol shooting champion for France. The first president of the International Olympic Committee introduced four pistol and two rifle events at the first modern Olympiad. The sport has featured at all bar two Games since, St Louis in 1904 and Amsterdam in 1928 not having staged shooting events. His record-breaking did not stop there, however, and over two days at the Stockholm Games of 1912 he established two more Olympic milestones which have stood the test of time. First, he became the oldest medal winner in an individual event, by taking the bronze in the Running Deer, double-shot at the age of 64 years and 256 days; then, he became the oldest ever gold medal winner when triumphant as a member of the Swedish Running Deer, single-shot team at the age of 64 years 257 days.

    A History of the Olympics
    According to legend, the ancient Olympic Games were founded by Heracles (the Roman Hercules), a son of Zeus. Yet the first Olympic Games for which we still have written records were held in 776 BCE (though it is generally believed that the Games had been going on for many years already). At this Olympic Games, a naked runner, Coroebus (a cook from Elis), won the sole event at the Olympics, the stade - a run of approximately 192 meters (210 yards). This made Coroebus the very first Olympic champion in history. The ancient Olympic Games grew and continued to be played every four years for nearly 1200 years. In 393 CE, the Roman emperor Theodosius I , a Christian, abolished the Games because of their pagan influences.

    SCHIESSPORTSCHULE II - or - SCHIESSPORTSCHULE I SCHIESSPORTSCHULE DIALOGUES II The United States Women's International Rifle Organization announces the publication of SCHIESSPORTSCHULE DIALOGUES II, a soft cover book, written by United States World and Olympic International Rifle Champions, who dominated the shooting world for more than a decade. It is an outgrowth of an Olympic development shooting school, organized by USWIRO, for elite international rifle competitors and their coaches immediately following the 1978 U.S. International Shooting Championships and Team Tryouts at the Ben Avery Range, Phoenix, Arizona. Dedicated to Deiter Anschutz, the book is a result of lectures that were taped, transcribed and edited by members of USWIRO. The organization disbanded in 1983 with all it's goals achieved. Publication of this book is a final project by former USWIRO officers. Dr. William Cole, President of EDGE Learning Institute, presents the complete "Increasing Human Effectiveness" seminar and a "Follow Up" lecture. This is the mental training course used by the U.S. Shooting Team and U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, Ft. Benning, Georgia, since it's original presentation at SCHIESSPORTSCHULE II. This material will give an understanding of how the mind and emotions function, with useable mental techniques to improve the mental aspect of shooting. This book is a "must have" for shooters in all disciplines, because the approach to winning doesn't change. It will be particularly valuable for serious collegiate and international shooters and coaches.

    Brief Record of Malaysia's Participation in Past Olympic Games since 1956 Prior to the formation of the Federation of Malaya Olympic Council in 1953 and its subsequent recognition by the IOC in 1954, some Malayans may have participated in the Olympic Games, representing their countries of origin, such as China and India. After receiving the recognition of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1954, the Federation of Malaya Olympic Council, as it was then known, sent a contingent of 33 athletes from 6 sports to participate in the Olympic Games in 1956 in Melbourne. Since then the Olympic Council of Malaysia, as it is known since 1964, has been participating in all the Olympic Games, except the 1980 Moscow Olympic Games.
    The Olympic Contingent of the Federation of Malaya to the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games comprised six athletes, two swimmers, 18 Hockey players, three Weightlifters and four shooters. There was only one female athlete in the Contingent, Ms. Annie Choong, who participated in Athletics. Amongst the Olympians were Koh Eng Tong, the 1950 British Empire Weightlifting gold medallist in the Featherweight Division and Tan Kim Bee, the silver medallist in the Light Heavyweight Division. The Hockey team finished 9th out of 12 teams. The Chef de Mission was Mr. H.M. De Souza (Hockey) and the Flag Bearer was Tan Eng Bee (Weightlifting)

Submit A Special Request Olympic Sports History BIATHLON The Biathlon, which combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting, originated in Norway as a training exercise for soldiers. The first known competition took place in 1767 between companies of guards who patrolled the border with Sweden. Late in the 19th century, local rifle and ski clubs in Norway and other Scandinavian countries practiced the sport to keep their members prepared for combat. An early form of the Biathlon, called "military ski patrol," was a demonstration sport at the first Winter Olympics in 1924, and it was a medal sport in 1928, 1936, and 1948. Because few countries participated, and the few that did participate had trouble agreeing on the rules, the sport was dropped from the Olympics. However, the Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne et Biathlon was founded in 1948 to standardize rules for both the Biathlon and the modern pentathlon. The first world championship was held in 1957 and Biathlon was added to the Winter Olympic program in 1960.
