Tug of War was an Olympic sport?
Tug of war was contested as a team event in the Summer Olympics at the Games of every Olympiad from 1900 to 1920. Originally the competition was entered by groups called clubs. A country could enter more than one club in the competition, making it possible for one country to earn multiple medals.

Sweden was also among the top countries with two medals, one as a member of the mixed team.
