Taken from Wikipedia The heats of the 100 metres were the first Olympic event to be conducted, and the winner of the first heat, Francis Lane, can thus be considered the first Olympic winner. The first Olympic champion was crowned in the triple jump, Harvard student James Connolly. Connolly also did well in the other jumping events, placing second in the high jump and third in the long jump. The first Events of the 1896 Olympics were contested on April 6th at the Panathinaiko Stadium in Athens
