Pigeon Racing in 1900

A pigeon racing event was an unofficial sport at 1900 Olympic Games in Paris. There were six events contested, open to any French team located more than 80km from Paris. Each team was required to release at least 100 pigeons.

In total, 7,721 pigeons were released from 48 teams (source: 1900 Olympic Games Official Report). This event is no way associated with the pigeon shooting event at the same Olympics.
