For a moment there i thought that i was back in the 1920s, but it was just another wonderful moment in India back in ‘89.
You might be surprised to learn that at its inception in the mid-1800s cheerleading was an all-male sport. Characterized by gymnastics, stunts, and crowd leadership, cheerleading was considered equivalent in prestige to an American flagship of masculinity, football.

As the editors of Nation saw it in 1911:
…the reputation of having been a valiant “cheer-leader” is one of the most valuable things a boy can take away from college. As a title to promotion in professional or public life, it ranks hardly second to that of having been a quarterback.*

Olympic volleyball was first played as a demonstration sport at the Tokyo Olympics of 1964, and then not played officially until 1972, which is also when the “Olympic format” was devised for competition, notably the introduction of a “final round”, consisting of quarterfinals, semifinals and finals.

Sadly, these races occurred because Owens needed the money. After his Olympic success, he did not get the type of endorsements and sponsors that he needed.
“People said it was degrading for an Olympic champion to run against a horse, but what was I supposed to do?” Owens said. “I had four gold medals, but you can’t eat four gold medals.”
Later Jesse Owens revealed that his strategy was to race against high-strung thoroughbreds that would be frightened by the starter’s shotgun and start poorly!

The women’s double National round was one of three archery events on the archery at the 1908 Summer Olympics programme. Arrows were shot in ends, or groups, of three. The archers shot a total of 144 arrows each over the two rounds of 72. The competition was held on Friday, 17 July and Saturday, 18 July, with one round each day. Each round consisted of 48 arrows at 60 yards (54.8 m) and 24 arrows at 50 yards (45.7 m).
Great Britain was the only nation to send female archers, ensuring that they swept this event. Queenie Newall, at 53 years of age, set a record for oldest female Olympic gold medallist that appears unlikely to be broken. Lottie Dod took second place, not quite matching her brother William Dod's gold medal finish in the men’s York round. Twenty-five archers only from Great Britain competed.
