30-Second History
  • Biathlon is one of the oldest Olympic sports. It can trace its origins to 3000 BC when early hunters used skis to travel across snow and ice. The modern birth of biathlon has military ties because northern European soldiers used cross-country skis to patrol borders. The first-ever biathlon competitions were organized by Norwegian military units. Biathlon appeared as an Olympic demonstration sport four times, but debuted as a full-medal sport in 1960. Women's biathlon was added in 1992.
~3000 BC Early hunters used cross-country skis to travel across snow and ice while hunting with bow and arrow. 1700 AD Cross-country soldiers were used in the Great Scandinavian War that lasted until 1718. The first recorded biathlon race was organized by Norwegian soldiers. The first rifle and ski club was founded to assist in the development of military ski patrols. Biathlon was held as a demonstration sport under the name "military patrol" at the Olympic Winter Games in Chamonix, France. The renamed event "biathlon" first appeared as an official International Olympic Committee sport.

  • Festivals Search: The Original Olympics About 2300 years ago, the Land of Israel was in the grip of Greek culture. The Greeks believed in beauty for its own sake. They loved beautiful buildings, colourful paintings and sweet music as well as emphasising the beauty of the body. Many physical tests and sports took up their time as they developed their muscles and bodies. Their religion was one of many gods and goddesses who lived on lofty Mount Olympus in north-eastern Greece. These "gods" were very physical and stories were told of how they feasted and squabbled with each other. The annual Olympics was a religious as well as sporting event in Greece. Offerings and gifts were given to the Greek gods, especially Hercules, before the games began. Participants competed in the nude and much emphasis was placed on bodily beauty and physical prowess. This had a powerful effect on the Jews of that time. Gymnasiums sprung up in major Israeli cities and young Jews would spend more and more time exercising and beautifying themselves. Some Jewish men actually had operations to conceal their circumcision and the High Priest in Jerusalem changed his name from Joshua to Jason in his eagerness to accept and promote this foreign culture. Other Jews, however, resisted strongly. They saw how the promotion of sport led to alienation from Judaism and finally to assimilation. This was a battle of two cultures with deeply opposing basic beliefs. The Greeks worshipped nature and their petty materialistic gods while the Jews recognised the one true Creator of the universe who is not limited by physicality.

    "Jim Thorpe was probably the greatest natural
    athlete the world has seen in modern times."
    The New York Times Book of Sports Legends(1991)
    edited by Joseph Vecchione.
    Jim Thorpe of the Thunder Clan of the Sac and Fox Tribe, was born May 22, 1887, on the Sac and Fox Indian Reservation, Prague, Oklahoma.
    In writing for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Whit Canning reported that Thorpe was the son of Hiram and Charlotte Thorpe, his Indian - name Wa-Tho-Huk - meant "Bright Path." He wrote that Thorpe had been a twin but that his brother Charlie died of pneumonia when Thorpe was 9. He also lost both of his parents when he was a teenager.
    In the 1912 Olympic Games in Stockholm Jim won both the pentathlon and the decathlon.
    Reporting for the New York Herald Tribune in 1953, Red Smith wrote that in the pentathlon, Jim had won the broad jump, the 200-meter hurdles, the discus throw, 1,500 meter run and was third in the javelin. In the decathlon he was first in the high hurdles, the shotput, the high jump and the 1,500. He had also been third in the 100 meters, the discus, the pole vault and the broad jump. He also placed fourth in the 400 meters and the javelin. He had come back from Stockholm with a reportedly $50,000 worth of trophies. A month after his return the Amateur Athletic Union filed charges of professionalism against him because he had played summer baseball with the Rocky Mount Club in the Eastern Carolina Leagues. Even though it had been for a small amount of money he had been stripped of his medals and his trophies sent back to Stockholm. His medals were returned posthumously on October 13, 1982.

    Olympics Delays Sports' Elimination
    MEXICO CITY, Nov. 29, 2002
    "Don't send us to the Olympic museum."
    Klaus Schormann, head of the Modern Pentathlon Federation
    (AP) A decision on whether to drop baseball, softball and modern pentathlon from the Olympics won't come until after the 2004 Athens Games.
    The International Olympic Committee chose Friday to put off a vote that could eliminate a Summer Games sport for the first time since polo in 1936.
    None of the 39 speakers during Friday's debate expressed support for a report that recommended trimming the three from the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The report cited limited international appeal and high costs. "They've certainly gotten their warning about what our concerns are," said IOC member Dick Pound of Canada. IOC president Jacques Rogge avoided a question about whether the three sports are assured of being part of the Beijing Olympics. The sports promised to find ways to share costs - baseball plans to trim the length of its tournament and share fields with softball.

    The Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta came to a close Sunday night, after two weeks of athletic competition between 197 countries and over 11,000 athletes the most ever in an Olympic Games. The Games closed with International Olympic Committee president Juan Antonio Samaranch praising the city of Atlanta, but notably failing to call the game as "the greatest in Olympic history" a phrase that has become routine in his Closing Ceremonies speeches.

    When a nation unites
    By BBC Sport Online's Tom Fordyce The talk across Britain on Thursday was of one thing and one thing only. Kylie's saucy performance at the Brits counted for nothing - for this was the day when curling came to town. With Great Britain's women's team on the brink of Olympic gold in Salt Lake City, the nation rushed to embrace a sport it had successfully ignored for the past 200 years. Offices and shops across the land were dominated by heated arguments about tough ends, four-foot rings and stones in houses. Generally speaking, few would give a monkey's about the exploits of a Scottish housewife and her broom. But, when there is even the slightest chance of sporting glory, the country will take even the strangest pursuit to heart - as a glance at the history books shows... Shooting Few indeed are the times when the arrival of a bearded man wearing a Union Jack headband and waving a rifle around is greeted with universal acclaim. But that's what happened when Malcolm Cooper - 'Cooperman' to his devotees - returned to these shores after claiming his second Olympic gold in 1988.

    The Dome and Exhibition Complex, Sydney Showground is 22,000 square metres. The four exhibition halls can be configured as one uninterrupted 312 metre long space, which is equivalent to more than three football fields
    The timber-framed Dome is 97 metres in diameter and was built on the ground before being gradually lifted to a height of 42 metres
    The use of plantation softwood timber beams in the roof structure was a key element in creating the building’s character, as well as being consistent with Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD) principles.
    The Complex’s 42 metre-high domed main hall proved to be the most practical design to meet the Olympic requirement for a single area which would seat 10,000 people around a performance space.
    A "displacement" or "chilled beam" air-conditioning system operates in the Dome meaning better air quality and lower energy requirements. Websites:
