  • Hi People, this is my first quiz on Gyaan.
    I have a sports quiz coming up in a few days, so I decided to post some of the questions I came across.
    Most of them are pretty easy.

    1. Who won medals in gymnastics at the 1904 Olympics with a wooden leg?
    2. Who won the first gold for China at the Olympic Games?
    3. Who holds the record for the most aces in a tennis match?
    4. Which Australian rower, in the quarter-finals of his event, stopped to let a line of ducks pass, and still won the race? (He went on to win the Gold too)
    5. Who is the only driver to be awarded the Formula 1 championship posthumously?
    6. Which company has been the ball supplier for the Wimbledon championships from 1902?
    7. Who was the first person to win both the Dronacharya and the Arjuna awards?
    8. Which is the only sport at the Olympics in which only women compete?
    9. Who was the first Arjuna awardee for shooting?
    10. Jim Laker created an awesome record by taking 19 wickets in a Test match. Who took the other wicket?

    @marvellousmanas Thanks dude, but the answer is not handball.
  • Netball is a sport which is recognized by the IOC, but has never been conducted at the Olympics. So netball is only partially correct.
    The answer is something else. Keep trying, mate.
