The Olympic Summer Games were held in London in 1908.
On the schedule there were interessting competitiones like Tug of War, Racets ( a kind of squash) and Figure Skating.This took place at the Prince's Skating Club, in the district of Knightsbridge. It was the first time that a type of winter sport was ever introduced in the Olympic Games, 16 years before the first Winter Olympics in Chamonix.
If this lovely couple would have gone through the ice at that time, many would have spared us. All this boring sunday-afternoon events with this young ladies throwing competitions.
