Olympic sports

A graphic from the BBC shows which sports and disciplines have taken place at each of the 26 Olympic games. I'll bet not many people would be able to name the four that have been in all 26 games.


  1. What is 'athletics'? Not very specific, is it?

  2. I think they use "athletics" to refer to the track and field events (?).

  3. II have to agree - I wish they had split out 'athletics' into it's component events. My guesses were: 100 yard (meter) dash, marathon, boxing, and wrestling. Close, but no cigar. One can see what I bean by breaking it out when one compares the marathon to the heptathalon: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heptathlon
