Best Answer

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.
