Some More Weird Olympic Facts

The last few days of the Olympics are coming up so I figured why not get some more weird olympic facts out there.

The Olympic gold medal has not been made from pure gold in 100 years!  (I am not trying to win the gold, I want to win the silver medal with gold plating).

The first time that the Olympics were in London in 1908, the games lasted for 187 days.  That is a long, long time.

The youngest and oldest Olympians are separated by 62 years.  The youngest was 10 and the oldest was 72.  That is a pretty big difference.

China didn’t win its first Olympic medal until 1984.  That is pretty insane since they seem to be the only country left who can challenge the US.
