The 1911 International Tournament was an unfortunate series of events.
Several gymnasts were injured during the competition, and despite their injuries, they continued to compete with broken limbs and bandaged heads.
Rain pushed the apparatus portion of the competition indoors. When it came time for the athletics portion in the afternoon, Cupérus, the FIG President, wanted the athletes to compete in inclement weather rather than end the competition or finish it the next day.
Because of the rain delay, several gymnasts had to sprint 100 m in near darkness.
One more important note: Until the 1948 Olympic Games, teams could bring their own apparatus to competitions. That tradition started in 1911 with the Czech Sokols.
