Best Answer

Tug of War was dropped after the 1920 Olympics. The IOC removed tug of war and 33 other sports because too many sports were part of the Olympics. It was an Olympic sport from 1900 until 1920. However, it's still a part of international competitions at the World Games and with the Tug of War International Federation.

Great Britain won the most amount of medals, two golds, two silvers and one bronze. The United States is next with one gold, one silver and one bronze.

Archery was not a sports event in the first ancient Olympic Games in Greece.

Archery for men was an event for the first time in the modern Olympics in 1900. The first archery event for women was in 1904. However, there was no uniformity in the rules in those early Olympics and archery was dropped as an event after 1920. The international governing body for archery, the Federation Internationale de Tira l'Arc (FITA), was founded in 1931. See the related link.
