Olga Korbut 1972 Olympics I can't honestly claim to be a gymnastics fan, but even I was captivated by Olga Korbut in 1972. Prior to the Munich Olympics, the world's dominant female gymnasts were mature, balletic-type women. Korbut ushered in the era of pixie-like pubescent teenage gymnasts.

Womens Gymnastics 1936 Fascinating footage of women's gymnastics from the 1936 Berlin Olympics. It looks like slow motion compared to what gymnastics became in the 1970s.

Pete Maravich Dies at Age 40 The greatest college basketball player in history was Louisiana State University's Pete Maravich. He still holds the career NCAA scoring record despite playing in an era when freshmen were ineligible and there was no three-point line on the court. In a 1973 Sports Illustrated interview, Maravich championed proper diet and exercise. He said, 'I don't want to die of a heart attack when I'm 40.' On January 6, 1988 Maravich collapsed after a session of pick-up basketball in a church gymnasium. The cause of death: heart failure. He was 40 years old. Maravich's last words were, 'I feel great.'

Shirley Temple-Graham Greene Lawsuit Before Graham Greene became a famous novelist, he was a freelance writer and critic for several British publications. In 1937, his review of the Shirley Temple movie Wee Willie Winkie in the magazine Night and Day outraged the public on both sides of the Atlantic. Greene basically described the nine-year-old Temple as sexually provocative. Wrote Greene, 'Infancy is [Temple’s] disguise, her appeal is secret and adult with the seductiveness of a [Marlene] Dietrich...Her well-developed rump twists in a tap-dance...She measures a man with agile studio eyes and dimpled depravity. Her admirers-–middle-aged men and clergymen-–respond to her dubious coquetry and well-shaped and desirable little body...Hear the gasp of her antique audience. Some of her popularity seems to rest on an oddly precocious body as voluptuous in grey flannel trousers as Miss Dietrich’s.' 20th Century Fox sued Night and Day on behalf of their star actress and won a judgment of 3,500 British pounds. The lawsuit bankrupted the magazine.

Dunblane School Shooting On March 13, 1996, unemployed former shopkeeper and former Scout leader Thomas Watt Hamilton committed one of the most dastardly crimes in the history of Great Britain. That morning Hamilton walked into the Dunblane Primary School in Dunblane, Scotland. Although Great Britain has strict gun control laws, Hamilton was armed with two 9-mm Browning HP pistols and two Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum revolvers--all legally held. He was carrying 743 cartridges, and fired his weapons 109 times. After gaining entry to the school, Hamilton made his way to the gymnasium and opened fire on Gwen Mayor's class of five- and six-year-olds (shown in the photo), killing or wounding all but one person. Fifteen children died together with Mayor who was killed trying to protect them. Hamilton then left the gymnasium through the emergency exit. From the playground he began shooting into a mobile classroom. No one was injured there because an alert teacher had warned her class to take cover under their desks. Hamilton also fired at a group of children walking in a corridor, injuring one teacher. Hamilton returned into the gym and killed himself with a bullet to the head. A further 11 children and three adults were rushed to the hospital as soon as the emergency services arrived. One of these children was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital. The motive for the shooting is unknown, but Hamilton was well known in Dunblane for being odd and creepy. He had been stripped of his scout leader credentials and his private sports clubs had been shut down by local officials because of Hamilton's alleged paedophilic tendencies toward young boys. Among the uninjured pupils at the school was eight-year-old future tennis star Andy Murray who seldom discusses that day's tragic events.

Gymnastics Age Scandal - Kim Gwang Suk Some people never age--at least in the world of women's gymnastics. Kim Gwang Suk was a North Korean gymnast who competed at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. She was also at the forefront of the one of the biggest scandals in her sport's history when it was discoverd she was listed as 15 years old for three consecutive years! (At that time, a gymnast had to be at least 15 to compete in senior events; the age minimum was raised to 16 in 1997.) Kim's petite frame fooled everyone, including the folks at FIG, the governing body for international gymnastics. They never did manage to obtain her real age. Nevertheless, the impossibility of Kim being 15 for three years prompted FIG to ban the entire North Korean team from the 1993 World Championships.

Olympian Anthony Hembrick Misses Bus During the mid-1980s, Detroit's Anthony Hembrick, a member of the U.S. Army, was a three-time American amateur middleweight boxing champion. He was perceived to be a medal hopeful when he arrived at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. However, Hembrick never got the chance to show his stuff because he never got the opportunity to fight there. Hembrick and his coach, Ken Adams, were misinformed about the time of Hembrick's first-round match and missed catching a bus from the Olympic Village that would have gotten him to the boxing venue in ample time. By the time Hembrick and Adams arrived at Chamshil Students' Gymnasium, Hembrick had been disqualified and the match was awarded to South Korean Ha Jong-Ho. The 1988 Olympic boxing tournament was replete with odd incidents and controversies. Anti-American sentiment among the host South Koreans was widespread. Some conspiracy-minded people believe Hembrick was deliberately misled about the time of his match so the South Korean boxer would win by walkover. Hembrick later embarked on a pro boxing career, usually at light heavyweight, that was largely disappointing. He was often introduced before his bouts as "the man who missed the bus."
