Round 7 ...

Beijing 2008 - The 2008 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXIX Olympiad and commonly known as Beijing 2008, was held from 8 to 24 August 2008 in Beijing, China. A total of 10,942 athletes from 204 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) competed in 28 sports and 302 events (one event more than those scheduled for the 2004 Summer Olympics). This was the first time China had hosted the Summer Olympic Games, and the third time the Games had been held in East Asia, following the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, and the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea. These were also the second Summer Olympic Games to be held in a communist state, the first being 1980 Summer Olympics in the Soviet Union (present day Russia).

Athletes from China won the highest number of gold medals of any nation at these Games, with 48, thus making China the seventh nation to rank top in the medal table in the history of the modern Olympics, along with the United States (fifteen times), France (in 1900), Great Britain (in 1908), Germany (in 1936), the Soviet Union (six times), and the Unified Team (in 1992).

Tom Daley knits while watching Olympic springboard final

"The Experiment" (Alexander Karelin was one of the greatest Greco- Roman wrestlers. He was predominant to the point that it prompted his opposition and the world’s media nicknaming him “The Experiment,” inferring that somebody like him couldn’t have come about normally and that he was a type of Russian science test. Karelin won gold medals at the 1988, 1992 and 1996 Olympic Games under a different flag each time (Soviet Union, Unified Team and Russia respectively), and a silver medal at the 2000 Olympic Games. His wrestling record is 887 wins and two losses, both by a single point. Prior to his farewell match versus Rulon Gardner in September 2000, a point had not been scored on him within the previous six years. Karelin was the national flag bearer at three consecutive Olympics: in 1988 for the Soviet Union, in 1992 for the Unified Team, and in 1996 for Russia)

Bobby Finke - is an American swimmer. He won two gold medals for the United States in the 2020 Summer Olympics: the Men's 800 meter freestyle swim and the Men's 1500 meter freestyle swim.

Golf returns to the Olympics in 2016 at the Rio Games (At the IOC session in Copenhagen in October 2009, the IOC decided to reinstate this event for the 2016 Summer Olympics. As of the 2016 Olympics, qualification is based primarily upon the Official World Golf Ranking and Women's World Golf Rankings, with the top 15 of each gender automatically qualifying, and then the highest ranked players from countries that had not yet already qualified two players)

Trivia:

Golf was featured in the Summer Olympic Games official program in 1900 and 1904.

A men's individual tournament was planned for the 1908 London Games, but an internal dispute amongst British golfers led to them boycotting the event, leaving 1904 gold medalist George Lyon as the only competitor. Offered the gold medal by default, Lyon refused to accept it............

So it's been about 24 hours.............................

Helen Stephens had to submit to a "gender check" (At the 1936 Berlin Olympics after beating Poland's Stanislawa Walasiewicz (the defending Olympic champion) a Polish newspaper reporter accused Stephens of being male. She was forced to submit to a genital inspection which confirmed her gender as female by the Olympic Committee)

This wasn't the only humiliation Helen was subjected to during these Olympics. From her Wikipedia page..........

Stephens is quoted by Olympic historian, David Wallechinsky, about her post-race experience with Adolf Hitler. "He comes in and gives me the Nazi salute. I gave him a good, old-fashioned Missouri handshake," she said. "Once more Hitler goes for the jugular vein. He gets hold of my fanny and begins to squeeze and pinch, and hug me up. And he said: 'You're a true Aryan type. You should be running for Germany.' So after he gave me the once over and a full massage, he asked me if I'd like to spend the weekend in Berchtesgaden." Stephens refused.

I hope to be able to tell the story of the Silver Medalist, Stanislawa Walasiewicz, later in the game..................

Jesse Owens (was an American track and field athlete and four-time gold medalist in the 1936 Olympic Games. Owens specialized in the sprints and the long jump and was recognized in his lifetime as "perhaps the greatest and most famous athlete in track and field history")

Jesse is saluting the American Flag, that's not what/who the idiot behind him is saluting..................

With Helen Stephens (from my previous post) at the Olympics...............

Trivia: 

Just before the competitions, founder of Adidas athletic shoe company Adi Dassler visited Owens in the Olympic village and persuaded Owens to wear Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik shoes; this was the first sponsorship for a male African American athlete........

The dormitory that Owens occupied during the Berlin Olympics has been fully restored into a living museum, with pictures of his accomplishments at the games, and a letter (intercepted by the Gestapo) from a fan urging him not to shake hands with Hitler..........................

Believe it or not..............

Jesse was a pack-a-day cigarette smoker for 35 years, starting at age 32. Beginning in December 1979, he was hospitalized on and off with an extremely aggressive and drug-resistant type of lung cancer. He died of the disease at age 66 in Tucson, Arizona, on March 31, 1980
