Oral History of the Olympic Games (Introduction)

Recommended Posts

The History Department of the European Virtual School is launching an Olympic Games Oral Project. The plan is to start threads where people can post their recollections of previous Olympic Games. It is hoped that we will be able to persuade former competitors to post their thoughts as well.

The second part of this project will involve people posting their impressions of the 2004 Olympic Games.

My post consists of a protest and a question:

I hate the custom, currently almost compulsory, of the athletes showing off national flags after their victory in most of the sport events. I think that Olympic Games are supposed to achieve just the opposite outcome.

Did this habit start in 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games?
