Weird Olympic Sports
Weird Olympic sports are sports contested in the Summer and Winter Olympic Games.
1. Pulling your leg
Tug-of-war was one of the events at the 1908 London Olympics. Here, members of the U.S. team test their strength at the stadium in White City.
2. Hockey rolled
Roller hockey, unlike its ice cousin, failed to capture the imagination. It appeared at just one Olympics Barcelona in 1992.
3. Shooting the breeze
Live pigeon shooting only appeared once at the 1900 Olympics in Paris. Nearly 300 birds were slain in the bloody spectacle. Today, clay targets are standard.
4. Against all obstacles
At the same 1900 Olympics, obstacle course swimmers had to negotiate boats and poles. Today the River Seine is more likely to accomodate triathletes in the citys annual competition.
5. Fencing s foundations
Before there was fencing, there was the French martial art La Canne. The sport first appeared at the 1924 Paris Olympics and much like the name suggests, involved wooden canes.
