This post is about "Once upon a time" in sports. Have fun with it, and find as many WEIRD (or not so) and historical things as you can! YIKES!

Solo Synchronized Swimming was a sport at the Olympic Games between 1984 and 1992. It is surprising that it took the organizers three Olympics to realize that a person swimming alone cannot be synchronized with anyone else.

Solo Synchronized Swimming is still a World Championship event. This is Natalia Ishchenko from Russia in her final solo synchronized swim from 2011.

WWI was over, WWII hadn't really begun when the powers that be gave Berlin the nod to hold the Summer Olympics. Just glad Jesse Owens kicked Aryan Nation butt!

You got that right. Not to mention the civil rights applications later on. To bad it took another 30 years!
