Mo"men"t Of Glory

Updated: Apr 18

With the Winter Olympics now well underway, we see athletes of all ages, colors, shapes and sizes in pursuit of perfection. What also becomes apparent is that oftentimes an athlete selects a sport based on physical characteristics such as gender, height, or weight. While in most sports none of this matters because they are already segregated, in certain ones it definitely creates advantages and disadvantages. Although not prohibited, trying to fit a larger framed athlete into a bobsled, for example, could be a definite disadvantage. Going back to the above title, this post will cover one particular component of sports...men. Thinking about male athletes, we probably have many different pictures in our minds of what they look like. Maybe it's the extremely muscular well-conditioned body builder, ultra fast sprinter or huge sumo wrestlers. However we imagine them, they have shaped competitive sports teams for centuries. Many years ago, before the birth of the modern day Olympic Games in Greece, men played games against other men for entertainment, land, money, and even women. Much of what these warriors did back then for sport has become incorporated into what we see in today's Olympics. Sports like biathlon represent what men used to endure in their daily pursuit of basic necessities. Traipsing over rugged terrain carrying what was then bow and arrow on their back just in case they came across a likely meal. Some games, although not an Olympic event, like football, were originally for men only. A game deemed much too rough for delicate females was played by big burly male athletes looking to have good clean fun. Others, gymnastics and high jump for example, have specific skills or techniques named after the men who first performed them. Tricks like the Gaylord and Geingers are highly regarded in the world of men's high bar. The Fosbery Flop in track and field events is still used today by high jump athletes around the world. Fast forward a couple hundred years and the modern Olympic Games have become a place for men to demonstrate bravery, showcase natural ability and talent, and even sometimes risk their own lives to be given the honor of wearing a gold medal around their neck. But without them, elite athletes or not, sports would not be what they are today. So next time you lace up a pair of running shoes for an athletic endeavor, fitness class, or to merely check an item off a bucket list, remember the men who came before that conquered challenges, overcame fear, and triumphed over adversity all for the sake of being the best of the best. Good luck to the men of team USA. Thank you for all you have done to make sports entertaining for the past several hundred years. You got this!
