Princes and princesses have always done sports in their spare time. No wonder then that some of them have shone at the games and added lustre to their kingdoms' arms.The first royal prince to win an Olympic medal was Crown Prince Olav of Norway who got the bronze in Amsterdam in 1928 in the yachting event.He was followed by Prince Constantine of Greece who won the gold medal at the 1960 Rome games for another sailing event, the dragon class race.Other royal princes have taken part in the games without winning medals, Princess Anne of England, for instance, who represented Britain in the equestrian events at the 1984 Los Angeles games.Prince Felipe of The Asturias tried to give Spain another medal for sailing in Barcelona in 1984, and Prince Albert of Monaco trained very hard in order to take part in the bobsleigh event in the winter games at Calgary in 1988 and in Albertville in 1992.More often, kings, queens, princes and princesses grace the games with their presence when they are held in their countries.
