MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Are there any events that used to be in the Olympics but now are not?

Another Olympic themed Mundane Mysteries for you! There have been a few brand new events added to this year’s Summer Olympics like skateboarding, surfing, and a few others. But I was wondering if there were any events they’ve gotten rid of over the years. There are, and there’s definitely a few I feel they should bring back!

Way back in the years between 1912-1948 they used to have events that weren’t all athletic related sports. Things like Painting, sculpting, architecture, writing, and even music! They should totally bring all of this back. Can you imaging an Olympic Battle of The Bands!? It would be the best.
