On 24 March 1896 A S Popov made the first radio transmission in history while, of far more importance, 24 March 1921 saw the first ever International Womens atheltic event at the Women's Olympiad in Monte Carlo.  Only 5 nations took part and all the medals were won by the UK and France.  This is Violette Morris of France who won the shot and javelin throwing both.   Each athlete in the shot put and javelin throw events threw using their right hand, then their left. Their final mark was the total of the best mark with their right-handed throw and the best mark with their left-handed throw.  I know you want to know.....her final mark for the javelin was 41.53 and the shot 16.29 (I assume both are yards).  There were no cycling events. 

More immediately we are off to Maiden Bradley where the TT is happening.  Two possible routes below.
