The man believes in his ideas. In every era ideas dominate man. At the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, European society in general and mainly women, for some reason, believed that those who practiced athletics, an activity that required considerable effort, would make them age prematurely. Today we could perhaps laugh at this belief, as they will surely laugh at some of our customs and ideas in two or three generations. Women's athletics was incorporated into the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam for several reasons, including: the Women's Athletics Association had not joined the Olympic movement. Remember that when the baron Pierre de Coubertin He convinced Europe to create the modern Olympic Games and realized the natural need to create bodies that governed sports with the central purpose of unifying the competition criteria of each of the disciplines. This is how the International Federations were formed in parallel and simultaneously. In the Olympic Games of ancient Greece, when men competed naked, women were not allowed to be spectators and could even be punished with the death penalty. The prohibition was for married women. Not so for single women, who had the freedom to witness them. Greek women a little over two thousand years ago organized athletics competitions in Olympia and dedicated them to the goddess Hera and the beautiful Atalanta, protagonist of a myth that I abbreviated: she was a beautiful woman with light feet who, since she did not want to marry, She announced to her suitors that she would marry the one who beat her in an athletic race in which she would give them some advantage, with the sinister warning that if she caught up with them she would kill them by piercing them with a spear. Several young people lost their lives. The ingenious Hippomenes challenged her; When Atalanta was about to reach him and was preparing to spear him in the back, Hippomenes threw a beautiful golden apple from the Garden of the Hesperides to the ground. Atalanta stopped to pick up the apple. Hippomenes threw two more and reached the finish line first. Atalanta's greed makes it the creator of athletic professionalism... On August 2, 1928, during the JO, the women's 800 m dash was held. The German won Lina Radke in 2'16”8, RM, but most of the women collapsed when crossing the finish line. The situation upset the public and organizers. The obvious confirmed that the woman was not up to this kind of effort. The IOC made the decision to protect women and removed the grueling test from the program. The marathon, don't even think about it! Athletics gradually evolved and in 1960, the women's 800 m reappeared in Rome 60. In 1984 in Los Angeles, after several important events, the marathon was incorporated, unthinkable in the world society at the end of the 19th century and the dawn of the 20th century. The one in Boston, created in 1897, opened its doors to women in 1972 after Roberta Gibb,1966, and Kathrine Switzer1967, they ran it clandestinely.
