CHAMONIX, FRANCE---A ragtag parade down the
centre of town marked the opening ceremonies
of the first Winter Olympics.
Looks quaint, doesn t it? Look closer and you ll
see just how quaint: Many of the athletes---they
really were amateurs back in the day---are lugging
their own equipment: hockey sticks, skates, skis
and such. Then again, by 1924 standards, it was
considered quite a pageant.
Ninety years after its original publication, the
AP is making its original report on the opening
ceremonies of the first Winter Olympics available.
The whole shebang at Chamonix in 1924 cost
less than $28 million in today s dollars, and set the
tone for the winter games that followed.
Unlike their bigger, brassier and traditionally
much more expensive summer counterparts, they ve
been generally modest affairs ever since. But there
are oligarch-sized ambitions to flip the script this
When the world gathers in Sochi this week, Russ-
ian President Vladimir Putin and his countrymen
better have plans up their sleeves for something
with a little more oomph.
Otherwise, they ll have $50 billion---more than
has been lavished on any previous Olympics---worth
of questions to answer for.
Sochi was known once for the tea grown in the
region, and later, as the site of state-run, Neoclas-
sical-styled sanatoriums and Joseph Stalin s favorite
The plan now is to turn the summer resort town
alongside the Black Sea into a staging ground for
the most spectacular winter games ever, and in the
bargain, turn Sochi into a destination for the ski
and private jet-set.
Putin has hinted he will accept nothing less---
despite repeated construction delays, reports of
widespread corruption, environmental damage and
unrelenting criticism over a Russian law banning
And even those problems seem pale in comparison
to security concerns heightened after recent bomb-
ings in Volgograd and Dagestan believed to be the
work of Islamic insurgents in the nearby Caucasus
"The result expected by us," a defiant Putin said
recently, "is a brilliant Games."
The expectations for those first games, on the
other hand, were simply to improve on a winter
sports festival that had taken root in Sweden in
Fans and organisers of the Nordic Games had
managed to shoehorn a figure-skating competition
into the 1908 Summer Olympics in London, but
they kept lobbying for games of their own.
The International Olympic Committee finally
went along in 1924, granting the French officials
who staged the 1924 Summer Games in Paris a
chance to try their hand at six winter sports---alpine
and cross-country skiing, figure skating, ice hockey,
Nordic combined, ski jumping and speed skating.
Sixteen events were contested over 11 days, draw-
ing 258 athletes (including just 11 women) from 16
nations and exactly 10,004 paying customers.
