Interesting Fact: Olympics

 

Art was once an Olympic event! During the 1912 through the 1952 Olympics, achievements through painting, literature, architecture, sculpture, and music, received medals. The only condition was that each work must be somewhat inspired by the concept of sport.

 

In 1924, Irish writer Oliver St. John Gogarty entered the Paris Olympics for the first time and won Ireland’s first Olympic bronze medal as an independent nation. The poem made a connection between the former Tailteann Games in Ireland and the Olympics.
