Extractions: Some of you may have seen this column last month. If not click back to consult it, so that what follows makes more sense. The FAI is recognised by the International Olympic Committee for the sports of parachuting, gliding and hang-gliding and paragliding. This means that, in theory at least, any or all of these sports could find their way onto the Olympic Games programme. In practice, only one of the air sports, parachuting, has shown evidence of a settled ambition to feature in the Olympic Games. The FAI Parachuting Commission's campaign to achieve this ambition is already at least 15 years old. Parachuting featured in the Games in Seoul (1988) and Barcelona (1992), but only as a demonstration sport. There is no chance of parachuting being on the Olympic programme before 2008 at the earliest. The Olympics are already too big. Some sports must be ejected to make room for new ones, and this of course is politically a very hot potato. That is why something that happened in Monte Carlo on Friday 27 October 2000 is so important for parachuting and other air sports. After resisting any such move for many years, the IOC has now given its formal support - financial, moral and logistical - to the International World Games Association (IWGA), the organisation that runs the quadrennial "World Games" - the multi-sport event for IOC recognised sports that are not in the Olympics (water-skiing, squash, rugby, orienteering, roller skating and over 20 others). The full text of the agreement signed by IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch is on the IOC website at:

Extractions: Daring sporting performance at the 46th Gordon Bennett version française Created in 1906 and reserved exclusively for gas balloons, the Gordon Bennett Cup is the oldest aeronautical competition organized under the supervision of the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale. Last Saturday, 31 August 2002, around midnight, 17 crews representing 8 different nations took off for the 46th edition of this prestigious competition, climbing high in the sky above Châtellerault (FRA) with the aim of flying as far as possible in any direction. After three days and nights on board their home-built balloon, "Le Petit Prince", the two brothers Vincent and Jean-François LEYS (FRA) won the Gordon Bennett Cup for the second consecutive year. This time, the LEYS Brothers chose an especially daring flight route. After leaving the French coast between La Rochelle and Bordeaux, they skirted the north coast of Spain and then flew out on a semi-circular route over the Atlantic Ocean leaving the Portuguese coast more than 400 km behind them. With the help of their expert forecaster, the two aeronauts finally returned to dry land, touching down safely yesterday (Tuesday) evening at 20:12 UTC 100 kilometres north-west of Faro (Portugal), having covered a straight distance of 1282 km from their starting point. The pilots had meteorological assistance from Luc TRULLEMANS, the forecaster who guided the non-stop round-the-world balloon flights of Bertrand Piccard and Brian Jones in 1999, and of Steve Fossett in 2002.

Potted History took part in just two olympic sports in 1900 sports historians now accept that womenwere involved women also participated in ballooning, croquet, equestrianism http://www.olympicwomen.co.uk/Potted.htm
Extractions: Potted History Some early history about women and the Olympics Married women were barred from the Ancient Olympic Games but prostitutes or virgins were allowed to spectate. Kallipateria was the first female Olympic boxing coach in 440 BC. The first female Olympic champion was a Spartan princess called Kynisca, in 392 BC. She was also the first woman to become a champion horse trainer when her horses and chariot competed and won in the Ancient Olympic Games. Women had their own athletic games of Hera from about 1000 BC. Women were originally the prizes Ballooning, croquet and golf (1900) were once Olympic events in which women competed. Please see Statistics for more information. two Olympic sports in 1900 - tennis and golf. Sports historians now accept that women were involved in the yachting. Old programmes of the Paris Exposition show that women also participated in ballooning, croquet, equestrianism, golf, tennis and yachting. Bearing this in mind, we take the view that all women who took part in these sports were Olympians.

Extractions: Statistics SUMMER OLYMPIC GAMES STATISTICS Year Sports Events Countries Participants * we believe the statistics for 1900 should now read as above (7 tennis, 1 sailing,3 croquet, 10 golf, 1 ballooning, 1 equestrianism) From this table it can be seen that, apart from the 1932 and 1956 Olympics, there has been a steady and continuous increase in the number of female events and competitors since 1896. (The reason for the decline in numbers in 32 and 56 was because the games were held in the USA and Australia and it was expensive to send large teams. Where cost was an issue women tended to be left behind more than men). In the first Olympic Games in which women competed (Paris 1900) women represented 5 countries - USA, France, Great Britain, Switzerland and Bohemia. The Games of the New Millennium, the XXVII Olympiad, will took place in Sydney between 15th September and 1st October, 2000. There were 28 sports altogether and women took part in 25. Women will not contest 4 sports - Baseball ,Boxing and Wrestling. They will compete in Softball and men will not. There were 3 new sports in Sydney -Trampolining, Taekwondo and Triathlon. Women took part in all 3.

Extractions: Medal Tally Women in the Olympic Games ANCIENT OLYMPIC GAMES Today women make up a considerable portion of people competing in and watching the Olympic games. However, in the past it was never so. During the early ancient Olympic Games, men were the sole competitors. Even then, married women were barred from attending, but prostitutes and virgins were permitted to spectate. Eventually women managed to create their own Olympic Games in 1000BC. Symbols of fertility and pomegranates were prizes at the Womens Games, along with olive wreaths and a slice of sacrificial cow. At the mens Ancient Olympic Games, however, women were often the prizes for competitors who were victorious in the Chariot races. MODERN OLYMPIC GAMES "The Olympic Games must be reserved for men" - Baron Pierre de Coubertin Despite the dawning of the modern Olympic Games in 1896, injustices to female athletes still remained. In a bid to create some form of equality, several female competitors took the matter into their own hands and competed in unofficial events during the Olympic Games period. One such person was a poor Greek women named Stamati Revithi. More widely known as Melpomene, she was banned from competing in the mens marathon event and, therefore, decided to run by herself the next day. Stamati was refused entry into the Olympic Stadium to complete the final lap and had to do so outside the stadium. While many saw her efforts as an amazing feat, the Olympic athletics officials saw it as a great misfortune and therefore labelled her Melpomeme after the Greek muse of tragedy.
