The third block-of-four dedicated to the Summer Olympics of 1984 features cycling, pole vaulting, fencing, and women’s volleyball. Few sports have been so enthusiastically greeted at the Olympics as was women’s volleyball when it made its debut at the 1964 Tokyo Games. The sport was invented in Holyoke, Massachusetts, in 1895.
