Best Answer

The actual answer is 'Captain Canada' Ian Millar, who is savouring his 10th Summer Olympics in London 2012. He was 25 years old when he first took part in the Olympics at 25 in 1972. At 65 years old this may unfortunately be this talented equestrian's last trip to the Olympics; but I for one hope that he continues and ends up as also the oldest person to compete in the Olympics! He'd only have to compete in 2 more Olympic Games to get that title as well!

Who is Dr.. Carl Spengler?

Carl Spengler was born in Davos, the son of Alexander Spengler (1827-1901). He attended the universities of Tübingen, Basel, Heidelberg, Kiel, and Zurich, obtaining his doctorate at the latter in 1886.He spent his period as assistant from 1886 to 1889 at the Strassburg surgical clinic under Georg Albert Lücke (1829-1894), from 1889 to 1892 he worked with his father in Davos on the treatment of tuberculosis. In this period he published several treatises on tuberculosis that caught the attention of Robert Koch (1843-1910), who invited him to become a collaborator in his institute in Berlin. Here he also worked with the Nobel Prize winners Emil von Behring (1854-19179 and Shibasaburo Kitasato (1852-1931).During the years 1892 to 1894 Koch and Spengler collaborated on the best method of using tuberculin therapeutically - one of Koch's few scientific errors. Spengler, like others, was unhappy with the efficiency of tuberculin and introduced other forms of immunotherapy - of equally or even more dubious efficacy. Spengler believed he had identified immune antibodies in red cells, which has never been verified. Besides tuberculosis his research concerned syphilis, Spanish flu, and cancer.Carl Spengler later succeeded his father as director of this sanatorium, one of the best in Davos.Spengler was an ardent sportsman who sought to bring together athletes from the nations that had been enemies during World War I. In 1923 he established the Spengler Cup, an international ice hockey tournament that still takes place every year in Davos.Shortly before his death in 1937, Spengler transferred the right to produce his drugs to Paul A. Meckel, a collaborator who later founded the Meckel company, now Meckel-Spenglersan GmbH.

What major sports were created in the US?

Major Sports Created in the USBaseball, basketball and American football (not to be confused with rugby) originated in the US.Another answerBasketball was created by James Naismith, a Canadian sports coach. And the first explicit references to baseball appear to come from England.*THE FOLLOWING SPORTS WERE CREATED IN THE USA*BASKETBALL - BASEBALLBasketball was created in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA in 1891by James Naismith (Yes we know He was a Canadian) was created in 1845 by Alexander Cartwright the sport of rounders was the Liverpool and Scottish Rounders Association, formed in 1889, And if Alexander Cartwright created Baseball in 1845 then it first originated in the US. Besides the field and rules are so different, yes they both use bats, balls, bases, with rounders or cricket it has an oval shape Field, but with Baseball is diamond shape, one batter at a time, use cylinder shaped bat, not flat. Baseball uses gloves, has fouls lines, yes the idea Baseball might have been influenced by Cricket & Rounders, But all and all Baseball is an American sport.

When did the first baseball glove come out?

The first recorded instance of any player using a baseball glove dates to the season of 1869, when Cincinnati Red Stockings catcher Doug Allison first experimented with the idea by having a glove made for him by a local saddle maker. At that time, however, it was considered "unmanly" for players to seek protection for one's hands and the use of a glove was considered a sign of weakness. In 1875 Charles Waite of the St. Louis Brown Stockings became the first fielder to wear a fingerless glove. Unfortunately for him, he was the subject of intense ridicule by not only the opposing players and fans, but by his own teammates as well. Obviously, the timing was not right for the widespread acceptance of baseball gloves. It would take a few more years, along with a significant rule change, before the use of gloves became accepted. In the 1880s a rule was passed that made even the most "manly" of players consider using gloves: pitchers were now allowed to throw overhand. With the speed of pitches now greatly increased, balls were being thrown with alarming force to catchers, and struck with much greater force by batters. Valor quickly gave way to discretion. That decade witnessed players adopting the use of a tight fingerless glove for use in the field. Catchers normally wore a pair of gloves on their hands during that era, as they were clearly in the most vulnerable position with regard to hand injuries. The fingerless glove would be worn on the throwing hand. The adoption of the baseball glove by baseball star Albert Spalding when he began playing first base influenced more infielders to begin using gloves.In 1871, Spalding joined the Boston Red Stockings (precursor club to the modern Atlanta Braves) and was highly successful; winning 205 games (and losing only 53) as a pitcher and batting .323 as a hitter. After the NA folded, he joined the Chicago White Stockings of the newly formed National League in 1876, winning 47 games as the club captured the league's inaugural pennant. Spalding retired from baseball two years later. Retired from the game, he and his brother opened a sporting goods store in Chicago, obtaining the rights to produce the official National League ball. Alfred James Reach one of the early stars of baseball in the National Association. Similar to Al Spalding, Reach formed a sporting goods company and earned millions. In fact, he sold his company to Spalding in 1889. Reach sporting goodsone of the first Manufacturers of Baseball gloves.George A. Rawlings, invented improvements in the baseball glove. In an application, patented on September 8, 1885Rawlings proposed the use of padding in the fingers, thumb, and the palm of the gloves for the "prevention of the bruising of the hands when catching the ball." The felt/rubber combination in the padding provided for increased flexibility and thus improved protection from bruising. (I will include a picture of the patent below) George and Alfred Rawlings opened a retail sporting goods store in 1887Below I will leave a link to a Vintage Baseball Glove Dating Guide. -Steven KeyMan
