Extractions: and Olympic History Future spot for architect's drawing! The IISOH effectively has two divisions the Library and the Museum. The Board of Directors are seeking benefactor(s) to endow each division with a $25 million donation. An endowment will also be sought for the theatre in the amount of $25 million. The benefactor(s) will then be offered the opportunity to name the Library, Museum or theatre, subject to the final approval of the Board of Directors. Our plans are to construct facilities on a campus approximately 300 acres in size. This will allow us have room for expansion in the decades to come as we increase the endowment and add sports facilities to the educational program. Sports fields are desirable in order to teach through participation and play. If we have a baseball field we can teach the history of baseball by playing a game using 1860 rules for 3 innings, then playing by modern rules for 3 innings. In the basement of the Museum we could have a bowling alley from the 1800's where the pins have to be set by hand, and right next to it have a modern bowling alley that is fully automated. Our visitors can go bowling either way. Consider the possibilities for each and every sport this means a lot of space is needed.

History Of Squash No history of squash can be complete without an account of the amazing squash included as a sport on the programme of the olympic Games in the year 2008 http://www.squashplayer.co.uk/history_of_squash.htm
Extractions: For over 1,000 years man has invented and enjoyed a variety of games played by hitting a ball with either a closed fist - as in fives or bunch of fingers - or with some form of bat or racket. Around the year 1148 the French played le Paume, meaning the palm of the hand, which developed into Jeu de Paume, Real Tennis, Royal Tennis or, if you play the sport, simply Tennis. At sometime in the early 19th century this obsession with rackets and balls spawned another variety of the sport in the unlikely birthplace of the Fleet Prison in London. The prisoners in The Fleet, mainly debtors, took their exercise by hitting a ball against walls, of which there were many, with rackets and so started the game of Rackets. Rackets progressed, by some strange route, to Harrow and other select English schools about 1820 and it was from this source that our own sport of Squash, or Squash Rackets, developed. Squash was invented in Harrow school around 1830, when the pupils discovered that a punctured Rackets ball, which "squashed" on impact with the wall, produced a game with a greater variety of shots and required much more effort on the part of the players, who could not simply wait for the ball to bounce back to them as with Rackets. The variant proved popular and in 1864 the first four Squash courts were constructed at the school and Squash was officially founded as a sport in its own right.

Extractions: Squash Loses Opportunity: Short of Even a Simple Majority In a stunning series of roller-coaster developments, squash (along with karate) survived an intense nominating process for inclusion in the 2012 Olympic Games, only to then be soundly rejected in the final vote. After dropping baseball and softball from the 28-sports list and selecting squash and karate (above rugby, roller sports and golf) as the candidate sports to replace them, the International Olympic Committee ultimately decided that it would reduce the total number of sports in the London Olympic Summer games to 26 rather than allow squash and karate into the program. A two-thirds vote was necessary for admission as a new sport into the Games, and neither squash nor karate was able to garner even 40% of the votes cast by the IOC members this past Friday in Singapore.

Ted Wallbutton, Chief Executive of the WSF for fourteen years until his retirement at the beginning of this year, added: "Squash has come from nowhere in Olympic terms to become the first placed sport outside of the program. It is an amazing achievement and far from failing we should be proud that we won the race, but failed to collect the prize."

Extractions: Alpha Index Index by Sport History Bits Forum ... Search Table of Contents During the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, representatives of several Latin-American countries proposed a kind of regional Olympics for all of the Americas. The Central American Games were already in existence, having been hosted by Mexico in 1926 and by Cuba in 1930. In 1938, the Central American Games expanded in scope, becoming the Central American and Caribbean Games, and the idea of international sports competition also embracing North America was revived after being on hold for six years. As a result, the Pan American Sports Congress was founded at Buenos Aires, Argentina, in August of 1940 and delegates agreed that Buenos Aires should host the first Pan American Games in 1942. That didn't happen because of World War II, but the Pan American Sports Congress met again during the 1948 Olympics in London and revived the idea. Buenos Aires finally hosted the first Pan American Games, which opened on February 25, 1951. The 21 countries that took part were represented by 2,513 athletes competing in 18 sports. The organizing body was renamed the Pan American Sports Organization (PASO) in 1955, when the games were held in Mexico City. Canada competed for the first time, bringing the total number of countries to 22. There are currently 42 countries from North, South, and Central America and the Caribbean in PASO, which is headquartered in Mexico City. More than 5,000 athletes have participated at each Pan American Games since 1995.
