Show LAS Your Old School: Olympic Lacrosse

olympic_lacrosse

With the Olympics now in full swing, it is clearly time to focus on Old School Lacrosse in the Games, and its interesting, albeit short, history in the world’s biggest international sporting competition.

 

For a brief recap of lacrosse in the Olympics, check out the Wikipedia page on the sport’s Olympic history. It’s interesting to note that Canada has won both Gold Medals (1904 and 1908) and that even when the sport was played as a demonstration event, more than three teams never participated.

If we want to get lacrosse back to the Olympics, we clearly have our work cut out for us. A good way to get things started? Pick up some Olympic Collection gear, and keep the Lacrosse in the Olympics conversation going in YOUR neck of the woods!
