  • Greek Cycling in the Olympic Games By Nikos Gomolis After 108 years, Greek cycling came out of the silence and looks to better days in the Athens Olympic Games. It was in Athens in 1896, in the first modern Olympic Games, when Greek cyclists won five medals in total and before Greek cycling sport fell into obscurity. "Every start seems to be difficult", according to a Greek saying, but Greek cyclists offered great joy to the Greek fans at the time. However, since the Athens 1896 Games and till the Sydney Games Greek cycling had had a very difficulty time. But finally Greek cyclists saw the first ray of light in Australia. Barkas, Georgalis and Vassilopoulos came very close to winning a bronze medal and they finally took the fourth place in the Olympic sprint race. Greece had totally won a gold medal, three silver and a bronze one in cycling in the 1896 Games. Aristidis Constantinidis set the ball rolling winning the only gold medal in Greece's cycling history in the 87 kilometers road race finishing in three hours and 13 minutes. Athenian people were very familiar with cycling, because bicycle was the main mean of transport at the time. Stamatis Nikolopoulos won two medals, the only Greek cyclist who won two medals in Greece's cycling history. Nikolopoulos won two silver medals in the 12 and 2 kilometers race, while Yiorgos Kolettis won the third medal in the 100 kilometers marathon race. Panagiotis Paraskevopoulos won Greece's single bronze medal in the 12 hours race.

    1996 ATLANTA The last Olympics Games of the twentieth century was held in Atlanta in 1996 and Trinidad and Tobago's athletic squad (13 athletes) were among those who witnessed another exceptional Opening Ceremony choreographed by one of Trinidad and Tobago top carnival designers, Peter Minshall. Ato Boldon was the main medal hope: a world championship bronze medal in 1995, and a 9.92 winning time at the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Oregon made him one of the 100m favorites. Neil De Silva and Robert Guy also returned from 1992 and were joined by Long Jumper Wendell Willimas, Javelin Thrower Kirt Thompson, Long Distance Runner Ronnie Holassie and female High Jumper, Natasha Alleyne-Gibson, Gene Samuel- Cyclist, Boxer - Kirt Sinnette, Table Tennis player Dexter St. Louis, Debra O'Connor - Badminton and Swimmers Siobhan Cropper and Cerian Gibbes. O'Connor Olympic quest lasted just one game, as she lost 3 - 11, -11 to Canada's Denyse Juilien in the opening round of the ladies Badminton singles. Sinnette seemed to be heading for victory against Ehtiopia's Yarod Wolde until a final round knocked down paved the way for the Ehtiopians' points 11 - 10 points triumph. St. Louis had a tough time in his First Round group encounters and failed to win a game.

    The Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee was formerly called the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Association The Working Committee was first established in 1946, when it was felt that Trinidad and Tobago, a British Colony at the time, should take part in the quadrennial Olympic Games. This original Committee made up of four member-federations (Athletics, Cycling, Football and Weightlifting) was extended provisional recognition by the International Olympic Committee in 1946, thus Trinidad and Tobago was able to send a Team to the Central American and Caribbean Games held in Barranquilla, Colombia. Formal affiliation to the International Olympic Committee was granted to the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Association at the International Olympic Committee session held in London (1948) on the occasion of the celebration of the 15th Olympic Games. From four affiliates in the year 1948 the number of affiliated National Bodies now number eighteen and govern the sports of Athletics, Rugby, Badminton, Basketball, Bobsleigh Boxing, Cycling, Football, Men and Women's Hockey, Judo, Lawn Tennis, Shooting, Swimming, Table Tennis, Taekwondo, Volley Ball and Yachting. The General Council of the Committee is composed of one delegate per affiliate, except at the Annual General Meeting, when each affiliate is allowed two delegates. The officers of the Association are:

    St. Louis Cycling Club History Page The St. Louis Cycling Club had its beginnings in June of 1887 at the Lindell
    Hotel in downtown St. Louis. The St. Louis Cycling Club was organized around
    the pursuit of friendship and togetherness through the sport of cycling, and
    had well-attended club "runs" into the surrounding counties each weekend. In
    the early days the club was primarily a touring club, although it included a
    few who also raced.
    Cycling in St. Louis suffered a slump in popularity beginning in 1899, but
    interest resurged in 1906. Except for the St. Louis Cycling Club all other
    area clubs disbanded during those years from lack of interest and financial
    problems. The St. Louis Cycling Club stayed together and is recognized as
    the oldest continuously operating bicycle club in the United States. During those years a few of the more dedicated hard-core members abandoned the expensive clubhouse to take up "Headquarters In The Saddle", which became the club slogan. The club's symbol, a white Maltese cross on a blue background, dates from the club's earliest years.

    The race currently known as the Fitchburg-Longsjo Classic was first held in 1960 as the Fitchburg-Longsjo Memorial Race. It was renamed by the USCF in 1980, and is one of the few races in the country to be designated as a "classic." The first race was organized by Guy Morin as a memorial to his teammate Art Longsjo. Longsjo was a originally a speed skater from Fitchburg, and a very good one. As part of his training, he took up cycling, which uses similar muscles and involves similar tactics. The picture to the left was taken at his first bike race, the 1953 Massachusetts state championship. His clothing in the photograph is what he rode in, a t-shirt, cutoff skating tights, and moccasins, augmented only with a borrowed helmet. Longsjo didn't have a car, so he rode his bike for the hour and a half journey to Westboro Raceway, stopping along the way to reinflate his leaky front tire. Art competed in three events, the one-mile race, the three-mile race and the 25-mile race. His very first race was the qualifying heat for the one-mile, which he won impressively. He proceeded to win all three races.

    Brief History of the Olympic Games
    Ancient Olympic Games Chronology of athletic events added to the Olympic Games Myths and the Olympic Games Pelops myth ... Athens for Olympic Games of 2004
    Ancient Olympic Games The Olympic Games begun at Olympia in Greece in 776 BC. The Greek calendar was based on the Olympiad, the four-year period between games. The games were staged in the wooded valley of Olympia in Elis. Here the Greeks erected statues and built temples in a grove dedicated to Zeus, supreme among the gods. The greatest shrine was an ivory and gold statue of Zeus. Created by the sculptor Phidias, it was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Scholars have speculated that the games in 776 BC were not the first games, but rather the first games held after they were organized into festivals held every four years as a result of a peace agreement between the city-states of Elis and Pisa. The Eleans traced the founding of the Olympic games to their King Iphitos, who was told by the Delphi Oracle to plant the olive tree from which the victors' wreaths were made. According to Hippias of Elis, who compiled a list of Olympic victors c.400 BC, at first the only Olympic event was a 200-yard dash, called a stadium. This was the only event until 724 BC, when a two-stadia race was added. Two years later the 24-stadia event began, and in 708 the pentathlon was added and wrestling became part of the games. This pentathlon, a five-event match consisted of running, wrestling, leaping, throwing the discus, and hurling the javelin. In time boxing, a chariot race, and other events were included.

As the enthusiasm for the Sydney Olympics continues to build, 60 Minutes looks back at another, gentler time.
    A golden era before money, hype and sponsorship, when the closest thing to a performance-enhancing drug was a nice hot cup of tea.
    Four Australians who participated in five Olympics relive their gold medal victories: John Winter who won the High Jump at the 1948 Games; Lionel Cox who collected gold in the Tandem cycling (with Russel Mockridge) and silver in the 1000 metre sprint in 1952; David Theile who won consecutive gold medals in the 100 metres backstroke in the 1956 and 1960 Olympics; and Lyn McKenzie (nee McClemets) who swam to victory in the 100 metres butterfly in Mexico City in 1968.
    They're heroes who all enjoyed their brief moment in the sun, then chose to retire gracefully and quietly get on with the rest of their lives.

Wrestling ATHLETICS 100 metres The 100-metre dash is the show stopper of the Olympic Games, and one of the events in the original modern Games, in 1896. Eight runners qualify for the final, and they blast in a straight line down the track in lanes that are between 1.22 and 1.25 metres wide. Each runner is allowed only one false start, which is determined by pressure plates built into the runner's starting block. A runner has finished the race when his or her shoulders or torso cross the finish line. This has been a signature event for Canada over the years. Percy Williams of Vancouver won the 100 metres at the 1928 Games in Amsterdam, Harry Jerome won bronze in 1964, Ben Johnson won bronze in 1984 before winning gold and being humiliatingly disqualified for drugs in 1988. And Donovan Bailey won gold in Atlanta four years ago. Canadian women also fared well initially. Bobbie Rosenfeld won silver and Ethel Smith bronze in Amsterdam in 1928. Hilda Strike struck silver in 1932.
