Shot put is a discipline as old as the world. First mentions about a similar kind of sport can be found at Gomer, who described competitions in pushing rocks for different distances, which were held by soldiers precipitating the Troy. Later in XVII century the English soldiers held competitions in pushing … cannonballs in order to kill time. After all, it was decided to unify the rules and thus this discipline was born, which creates the history of sport since the first Olympic Games in 1896.

being a metallic core with a wood handle. In 1887 the rules were unified, the hammer got attached to a steel cable with a handle and its weight was set at 4 kg for women and 7,26 kg for men.

Wrestling is a visiting card of the Olympic Games (in the history of the Olympiad only once in 1900 fighting competition was not held).
The number of amazing combats in history connected with Olympic competitions is virtually endless. One of the most well-known combats in the history of the Summer Olympic Games was held in 1912 in Stockholm.
