 INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE - OLYMPIC GAMES
The 1972 Munich Games were the largest yet, setting records in all categories, with 195 events and 7,173 athletes from 121 nations.
They were supposed to celebrate peace and, for the first ten days, all did indeed go well.
The 1972 Games were also the first to have a named mascot: Waldi the dachshund.

  The Heroes of 1972: The 1972 Olympic Men's Basketball Team
This may be no more apparent than in the gold medal game of the 1972 Olympic men's basketball tournament.
With the outcome almost always in question, you can't completely blame others for interfering with what "should" have happened (as you might with a jury) because it's difficult to tell what the outcome "should" have been.
The United States' appeal of the outcome was rejected by three Soviet bloc nations, and the Americans did not accept their silver medals.

 Sports law - Wex
A simplistic, yet useful definition is that amateur athletes participate in sports as an avocation while professional athletes are involved in sports as a vocation.
Athletic activities are often organized and managed by individual groups that establish rules for eligibility and competition, and courts are often unwilling to interfere with the actions of these groups as long as their rules are reasonably applied.
Colleges and universities which receive federal aid are also subject to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 ("Title IX") and must not discriminate on the basis of sex in their athletic programs.

 Programs - Women in Sports
More girls and women play sports than ever before in American history, with millions competing in youth leagues, high school, college, and at the professional level, where tennis, golf, soccer and basketball are surging in popularity.
As a growing number of girls and women are becoming part of the sports culture and are influenced by it, it's instructive to look at the experience of women athletes, especially how they challenged attitudes and assumptions about competition and expectations.
Nicknamed after Babe Ruth for her prodigious feats, she excelled at numerous sports, including baseball, basketball, track and field, swimming, skating, and golf - she was a founder of the LPGA tour - despite limited opportunities for females in the 1930s and '40s.

At least two factors influenced the change: the lingering theory that women might be too fragile for competitive games, and a movement to get more students involved in recreational sports.
Pitt offered few team sports for women until federal legislation required schools and colleges to provide equal athletic opportunities for women and men.
Their ambitious sports program included events in basketball, hockey, volleyball, archery, swimming, baseball, golf, hiking, tennis, dancing, and some social events.

But since then, girls have exploded onto the sports scene and colleges have increased their athletic programs and established scholarships for female athletes.
There is no computer database of the more than 2.5 million girls playing high school sports, so college coaches never see or hear about the vast majority of girls who might be an asset to their sports programs.
Often a girl's initial letter will prompt the coach to send her a packet of information about the college itself and the sports program, as well as an information sheet for her to fill out and return.

Physical education and sports are increasingly a regular part of Soviet citizen's lives.
So the U-turn in sports policy - its angles actually slightly softened by participation in a few international events during the five years preceding 1952 - fit the Soviet pattern of restoring pre-revolutionary goals and practices, even some of the most hated, when it was expedient.

 Women's Sports Foundation Geena Takes Aim
Girls and women in high schools and colleges have the right to equal opportunity in sports because of a federal law, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
Title IX is the portion of the Education Amendments of 1972 that prohibits sex discrimination in educational institutions that receive any federal funds.
Similar gains occurred in intercollegiate sports, although the gains were not as spectacular.

 Equality in Sports for Women (Reference) - TeacherVision.com
In 1972 Title IX legislation was passed, requiring schools which receive federal money to provide equal opportunity and funding to male and female sports programs.
Today, women's team sports at the college level and their coaches (who happen to earn 63 cents for every dollar earned by head coaches of men's teams) are settling for substantially smaller budgets than men's team sports.
And women's professional sports, which don't even have a Title IX equivalent to fall back on for support, are lagging well behind men's sports in prize money, sponsorship commitments, and endorsements.

Title IX of the Higher Education Amendments of 1972 and its 1975 regulations protect against sex discrimination in athletics as well as many other aspects of education.
