Amateur Athletic Foundation Olympic Primer Another Squaw Valley first was the addition of speed skating as the fourth Salt Lake City organized the largest olympic Winter Games in history. http://www.aafla.org/6oic/primer_USgames.htm
Extractions: The third Olympic Games were held concurrently with the Louisiana Purchase Exhibition in St. Louis, Missouri. As in the 1900 Paris Games, poor planning and poor organization made the sports competitions a sideshow to the larger fair. While hundreds of sporting contests were staged over a four-month period, most were not Olympic events. There were no athletes from England, France or Sweden; even Pierre de Coubertin did not attend. According to one estimate, as many as 80 percent of the athletes were Americans. Sports highlights for women were few. Women's golf and tennis, which were on the program in 1900, did not take place in St. Louis. Women competed in only one sport - archery.

With the first Olympic Winter Games an enormous success, it was no surprise that the St. Moritz Games attracted an 84 percent increase in the number of participants including a 100% increase of female athletes. The Games started poorly due to extremely mild temperatures caused by the "fohn", the warm wind that sweeps the Swiss mountains from the south. The 1928 Winter Games in St. Moritz marked the first time Germany was allowed to participate in any Olympic competition after World War I; the Soviet Union was still notably absent. The Germans won a disappointing one bronze medal. Bobsledding was in the news at the 1928 Games. A new event, the skeleton sled, was upgraded from a demonstration sport and added to the program. In addition, teams in the four-man bobsled event had an option to include a fifth member. They all took up that option.

Extractions: Dear friends, The I.O.C. Session in Singapore was a real important step for us, we knew exactly how difficult it would have been for us to set up a valuable candidature and a presentation of our sport in such a short time, yet it was utterly important to be visible, and not to miss this uncomparable chance. We knew we had to put together a team in power of bringing roller sports up to becoming an olympic sport. The new criteria implemented by the I.O.C. at Singapore pushed the I.O.C. itself to a self criticism, it was in fact not one but two sports dropping the olympic programme, and this is giving us a strong sign. From now on judgement shall come on the work carried out: the time for granted rights is over. Comte Jacques Rogge, The I.O.C. President himself, (as you can see from the attached letter), underlines - just a few days away from the Session - that the match is not over, our sport shall be once again evaluated in the I.O.C. Session determining the 2016 Olympic programme.

Directory Because of its popularity in England, figure skating was on the program for the 1908 Olympic Games in London. When Antwerp, Belgium, hosted the 1920 Olympics after World War II, there was competition in both ice hockey and figure skating. Those sports could, of course, be conducted in rinks during the Summer Games. But other winter sports that were becoming popular in Northern Europe and the Alpine regions, such as skiing and bobsledding, obviously had to stay outdoors. After 1920, national governing bodies for such sports in several countries began talking about the possibility of a separate Winter Olympics. Top of Page The town of Chamonix, in the French Alps, planned a winter sports festival in 1924, when Paris was to host the Olympics. The Marquis de Polignac, a member of the International Olympic Committee, proposed to the IOC that the festival be formally recognized as the Winter Olympic Games. Another Frenchman, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympics, was opposed to the idea. However, the IOC agreed that Chamonix could call its festival a "Olympic winter carnival."

Extractions: Speed Skating in Montana Speed Skating History Speed Skating in Big Sky Country Speed Skating History Speed skating was the first of the three forms of skating to develop into a sport. (The three forms of skating are speed skating, figure skating and hockey.) As early as 1500, the Dutch were especially famous for putting blades to ice in a race. In the 18th century, speed skating's popularity spread across Europe, and organized races began for English aristocrats. By the late 1800s, steel skates had revolutionized the sport, and modern competitions were born. The Dutch again led the pack by creating the double track, as well as the competition format still essentially in use today for all long track races. With the advent of the Winter Olympics, speed skating's popularity continued to grow. In fact, speed skating has produced more medals than any other Olympic event. Many of the Olympics' most famous names, including Bonnie Blair, Eric Heiden and Olav Koss, are speed skaters. Speed Skating in Big Sky Country Montana has its own speed skating history, starting with our current Governor Judy Martz. She is a fourth generation Montanan who has lived most of her life in the Butte area.
