Croquet at the Olympics

There was only ever one croquet competition in Olympic Games history, held in 1900 in Paris. France won all events, which is not surprising as mostly French competitors took part. There were three women competing, but they did not win any medals. These were some of the first women to take part in the Olympic Games.

This tournament was also not a success with the spectators. Only one fan watched the events - an Englishman who had travelled from Nice especially for the occasion. No wonder we have not seen this event at the Olympics again.
