they still do not compete in the olympics........
The first time that women were allowed to compete in the Olympics was in 1900, at the Paris games. There were a total of 975 men and 22 women athletes at the Olympics that year. The women competed in tennis, sailing, croquet, equestrianism and golf.
At London 2012, 3 countries allowed women to compete at the Olympics for the first time. These were Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Brunei.
There were no women's events in the 1896 Olympic Games because women were not allowed to compete. Women were first allowed to compete in the Olympics starting with the 1900 Games and women's athletics (Track and Field) did not begin until the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam. The first woman to win the 100 meter dash in the Olympics was Elizabeth Robinson of the United States in a time of 12.2 seconds.
Finland was first invited to join the Olympics year 1896, but it didn't join. First time Finland competed at the Olympics in the year 1906.
If I could answer it I wouldn't have asked it
That would be Paris and the 1900 Summer Olympics. Charlotte Cooper of Great Britain was the first woman to win a gold medal at the Olympic Games when she won the Ladies Singles competition in tennis.
Luxembourg first sent an official team to the Olympics at the 1912 Games in Stockholm. They sent 21 athletes to compete in gymnastics and athletics. They won no medals. But the first athlete born in Luxembourg to compete at the Olympics was Michel Théato who won gold in the marathon at the 1900 Games in Paris. Michel lived in Paris and, at the time, was considered part of the French Olympic team.
It was the first time that women were allowed to compete in the games and Charlotte Cooper was the first to win the gold medal at tennis.
So they can compete in different places each time
19 women competed in three sports (golf, croquet, tennis) at the 1900 Games in Paris, the first Olympics where women competed.
