The History of the Olympics Since the Olympic games go way back to the early Greeks, to do an entire history on one page is a bit overwhelming. So, I'll give you a brief summation of how it all began, and then provide some further links for additional information. So, how and why did it all begin? In ancient Greece, they often combined religious festivals with sporting events, to honor certain gods. The Greeks held the following: The Pythian Games
The Nemean Games
The Isthmian Games
The Olympic Games It was the last one, the Olympics, that were held for the Greek God Zeus and were also the most popular with the people. The first game is said to be held at Olympia, Greece in 776 B.C. and has been held every 4 years since = 1,168 years! Then, Greece came under the rule of the Roman Empire and the Olympic games were declined, to the point where they actually declined in 393 B.C. by the Christian Roman Emperor, Theodosius I, who objected to what he felt were some "pagan rites" associated with the games. In the beginning, the Olympic games were confined to just one day and one event. That event was a footrace that was the length of the stadium. Soon, additional races were added as the popularity grew, as well as discus and javelin throws (tosses), broad jumps, boxing, wrestling, chariot racing and a pentathlon. The pentathlon was composed of 5 different track and field competitions.

Home OLYMPIC WINNERS 2004 NEWS 2004 Athens ... Paralympics The first modern Olympics
The Modern Olympic Games started in 1896 in Athens, Greece. The Athens Games of 1896 were a great success and were held in a superb white marble stadium, which was constructed in less than 18 months, able to hold 60.000 spectators. King George of Greece opened the event on April 5 in front of a full stadium.
Nine sports
Thirteen countries competed (Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark, Chile, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States). Nine sports, cycling, fencing, gymnastics, lawn tennis, shooting, swimming, track and field, weight lifting, and wrestling were on the agenda April 6 – 15, 1896.
Some highlights
The first heat of the 100m which was won by Francis Lane, USA, in a time of 12.5 sec, was the first competition of the Modern Olympics. The first winner was the American James Connolly, who won the triple jump of 13.71 metres. Worth to mention is also Edwin Flack, the only representative from Australia, a 23 year old accountant who won the 800 and 1500 metres track events. He also competed in the marathon until fatigue forced him to withdraw and in the singles and doubles tennis events.

    The Other History of the Olympics Golden Moments by Allen St. John September 20 - 26, 2000 ure, you've heard a lot about the truly heroic moments in Olympic history: Bob Beamon's record-breaking long jump, Abebe Bikili winning the marathon barefoot, Mark Spitz winning seven gold medals with that Tony Orlando mustache in tow. But the Olympics is also about cheating, drug abuse, wooden legs, sex changes, and death threats by dictators. Here is a Games-by-Games time line of classic Olympic moments that won't make NBC's heartwarming reel of past highlights. Athens 1896 The 1500-meter swim in the maiden Olympics is contested in open seas, with 12-foot-high waves and 55-degree water.

    Women in the Olympics - a brief history
    The 20th May 2000 marks the 100th anniversary of the opening ceremony of the Paris Olympic Games. It also marks the centenary of women’s participation in the modern Olympics. Three events were available for women at the 1900 Olympic Games: golf, tennis and yachting. When the modern Olympic Games began in 1896 women had no part in the competition. In fact, the founder of the modern Olympics, Baron Pierre de Coubertin had said on several occasions that the Olympics were no place for women. He felt that rather than seek records for herself, a woman’s greatest achievement was to encourage her sons to excel. Women had to work to gain a presence in the Olympic arena and force open the door to one sport after another. Swimming for women was included in the Games in 1912 and a limited program of track and field was added in 1928. Women’s races longer than 200m were banned until 1960 when the 800m was reintroduced. The women’s marathon was not added until 1984. In 1992 the 10,000m walk was introduced and recently, waterpolo — which had been the domain of men since the Olympics first began — was added to the 2000 Olympic Games program for women. Women have played an enormous role in painting the Olympic picture. Since Charlotte Cooper of Great Britain won gold in singles tennis at the 1900 Paris Olympics, many women have put their stamp on Olympic history.

    A Little History
    The Shooting Federation of Canada was formed in 1932, under the name of the Canadian Small Bore Rifle Association. In 1949, Supplementary Letters Patent were issued for a change of name to the Canadian Civilian Association of Marksmen. Our present name, the Shooting Federation of Canada was authorized in 1964 when skeet and trap associations affiliated to form one umbrella organization. In 1962, the SFC was officially recognized by the Fitness and Amateur Sport Branch of Health and Welfare Canada as the National Sport Governing Body responsible for organized recreational and competitive target shooting in Canada. The National Sport and Recreational Centre, NSRC was set up in Ottawa in 1971 and the Federation became one of the first resident organizations to locate its office in the Centre. The SFC is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of all forms of shooting activity in Canada. It coordinates a wide range of programs and services for recreational shooters, and arranges participation by Canadian teams in national and international competitions, including Commonwealth, Pan American and Olympic Games. Directing the Federation's affairs is a volunteer Board of Directors which includes representatives from each provincial/territorial association and any other affiliated shooting organizations. Programs are developed and implemented by Section Committees of each of the various disciplines; rifle, pistol, black powder, skeet, trap, running target, metallic silhouette, PPC/action shooting and fullbore. Special standing committees coordinate participation in international competition, national team training, coaching and officiating, firearms legislation and a variety of other activities. Day-to-day operations, including the servicing of members needs, classification of competitors and the sale of official targets and merchandise are conducted by the SFC national office.

    History and Geography of the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece by Rick Price, PhD. co-owner and co-founder of ExperiencePlus! Specialty Tours, Inc. The Olympics came to us as one of the oldest institutions of Classical Greece. Although the first written record of the games dates to 776 B.C., their origins go back at least five hundred years earlier and are linked to religious events well before that. The games honored Zeus, supreme god of all the Greeks and ruler of the sky (Zeus's brothers Poseidon and Hades ruled the sea and the Underworld, respectively). The Olympic games were officially abolished by the Roman emperor in 394 AD after a run of 1170 years! As god of all kings and of all humans, Zeus ruled from lofty Mt. Olympus north of Athens. His primary role was to keep the peace among those same gods and "men" on earth. In his honor a universal truce applied during the Olympic Games every four years and even though the truce was broken on several occasions, the games were never interrupted as a result of war. The reasons for the location of the games in "Olympia," near the west coast of the Peloponnesian peninsula are lost in history. The site was never a major city or permanent settlement except during the games themselves when tens of thousands of spectators and participants camped on the grounds. Evidence suggests that the site of Olympia was once the location of a religious festival honoring Gaia, the Earth Mother. Indeed, the site must have had strong historic and religious roots as it is located on the western edge of Classical Greece far from the Greek heartland as this

    Ancient Pentathlon



    Pentathlon Scoring Team Relay Competitions Calendar of Events Resources Pentathlon News Contact Modern Pentathlon History Admiration for the ancient pentathlon was fully shared by the founder of the modem Olympic Games, Baron Pierre de Coubertin. He persuaded the Olympic Committee to introduce Modem Pentathlon at the 5th Olympic Games of the modem era in Stockholm, Sweden in 1912. It was his belief that this event, above all others, "tested an athlete's moral qualities as much as their physical resources and skills, producing thereby the ideal, complete athlete." The choice of the five diverse and unrelated sports that make up the Modem Pentathlon arose out of a romantic vision of the wild adventures of a liaison officer whose horse is brought down in enemy territory. He defends himself with his pistol and sword, swims across a raging river and finally delivers the message on foot. Thus the modern pentathlon's five disciplines - show-jumping, shooting, fencing, swimming and cross-country running - were chosen.
