Obstacle Course Swimming (The men's 200 metre obstacle event was an obstacle swimming event in the 1900 Summer Olympics held in Paris. It was held on 11 August and 12 August 1900. Twelve swimmers from five nations competed. This was the only appearance of obstacle swimming at the Olympics. There were three obstacles throughout the 200 metre course. Swimmers had to climb over the first two (a pole and a row of boats), and swim under the third (another row of boats))
Hard to see but this is the swimmers climbing over a boat................
The event was won by Frederick Lane of Australia, with Otto Wahle of Austria second and Peter Kemp of Great Britain third. Lane had already won the 200 metre freestyle (with no obstacles).

Roger Ducret - was a French fencer who competed at the 1920, 1924 and 1928 Olympics. At the 1924 Summer Olympics he entered five events out of six and earned a gold or silver medal in each of them, winning individual medals in all three competitive fencing disciplines: épée, foil and sabre. During his times, only one fencer did better, the Italian Nedo Nadi won five gold medals at the 1920 Summer Olympics.

There are no fewer than 51 Olympic medallists in that group, with a further 22 reserve athletes heading to Japan. More than half will be competing at their first Games, with just 122 returning athletes.
It’s also the first time a British team features more women than men, with 201 female athletes across the 27 sports.
Uneven Bars (is an artistic gymnastics apparatus. It is made of a steel frame. The bars are made of fiberglass with wood coating, or less commonly wood. The English abbreviation for the event in gymnastics scoring is UB or AB, and the apparatus and event are often referred to simply as "bars". The bars are placed at different heights and widths, allowing the gymnast to transition from bar to bar. A gymnast usually adds white chalk to the hands so that they can grip the bar better)
When I was way younger I remember doing routines on those old wood uneven bars, amazing what the athletes can do now..................
Suni Lee won the Bronze Medal today on the Uneven Bars....................
