Day Three

The Rings Cycle – Your Historic Sporting Fact of the Day from The Daily Constitutional in London






Monday 30th Shooting

The Paris Olympics of 1900 ran alongside The World’s Fair and the French capital saw a great number of sporting events – both Olympic and otherwise – as part of the celebrations. In total 23 separate shooting events took place – including canon shooting and live pigeon shooting (!) – although the modern IOC recognises only nine as official Olympic events.



DURING THE OLYMPICS AND PARALYMPICS THE LONDON WALKS SCHEDULE WILL RUN WITH A NUMBER OF CHANGES TO THE REGULAR PROGRAMME. CLICK HERE FOR OUR SPECIAL OLYMPICS LONDON WALKS CALENDAR.


OUR REGULAR BLOG FEATURES HERE AT THE D.C WILL RETURN AFTER THE OLYMPICS.
