This year, the setting is one of the most beautiful in the world, Vancouver, Canada. Tidbits this week, honors the Games with a look back. • The first time a winter sport appeared in the Olympics was in the summer games. Figure skating made its debut in the 1908 Summer Olympics. The top skaters were 10-time world champion Ulrich Salchow of Sweden, who originated the backwards, one revolution jump that bears his name, and Made Syers of Britain. Both were the first singles champions. • Many organizers of the 1916 Summer Games in Berlin planned to introduce a “Skiing Olympia,” featuring nordic events in black forest. But the games were cancelled after the outbreak of World War I in 1914. • Upon the conclusion of World War I, the Games resumed in 1920 at Antwerp, Belgium, where figure skating returned and ice hockey was added as a medal event. Sweden’s Gillis Grafstrom and Magda Julin took individual honors, while Ludovika and Walter Jakobsson were the top skating pair. In hockey, Canada won the gold medal, with the United States second and Czecholslovakia third. turn the page for more! ��������� Printers & Publishers WANT TO RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS?
