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.
