Interesting Fact - Olympic Facts

From 1900 to 1920 tug of war was an Olympic event.

(It was considered to be part of the Olympic athletics programme. Originally the competition was entered by clubs, which meant that one country could win several medals. This happened in 1904, when the United States won all three medals, and in 1908 when the podium was occupied by three British teams. Sweden was also among the top countries with two medals, one as a member of the mixed team. Well I think we should bring it back in 2012. For starters the UK could do with the medals, and secondly I know two dogs who would be perfect on the team.)
