Here comes London 2012! It’s been a long time in the making, but it is here, Olympic madness is about to wash over us with unstoppable force. And on the note of Olympic madness we’ve put together an infographic of exactly that.
In the past the spectacle of the Olympics was not what we know now. Alright, there were events similar to what we watch know, but there was also a few variations. Things like the 100m Freestyle for Sailors for example. This isn’t the only anomaly in the back catalogue of Olympic events either. In fact up until 1936 there was quite the desire to try new things.
If you want to know a bit more about the strange and wonderful of Olympic events we’ve put together a list of 50 that you definitely won’t be seeing in London. From the mildly odd to the absolutely ridiculous we’ve pieced together a fine and varied history.
