Ice Hockey
By Jane Runyon

1     It's fast. It's exciting. It's a sport both spectators and athletes get involved in. Ice hockey has become one of the most watched Olympic events.
2     Ice hockey was invented in Canada in the late 1800s. The idea for the game probably came from English field hockey or lacrosse, which had been introduced to Canada by British soldiers. Students at McGill University in Montreal held the first recorded public game and made the sport popular. They even introduced the hockey puck to the game. It replaced a rubber ball that had been used for scoring.
3     Ice hockey was first played in the Olympics in 1920. At that time there were no Winter Olympics. The first Winter Games were held in 1924. Only men's teams competed for many years. It wasn't until 1998 that women's teams competed for medals.
