The 74th Hunger Games
I can't help but wonder if the Olympic games would permit Katniss Everdeen to compete in archery?
The second Olympic games, Paris 1900, saw the first appearance of archery. Women's team archery at the Summer Olympics was first contested in St. Louis 1904 and has been regularly contested since 1988.
The Hunger Games is a young adult novel written by American television writer and novelist Suzanne Collins.
It is written from the point of view of 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in a post-apocalyptic world in the country of Panem where the countries of North America once existed.
The Capitol, a highly advanced metropolis, holds control over the rest of the nation. The Hunger Games are an annual event in which one boy and one girl aged 12 to 18 from each of the 12 districts surrounding the Capitol are selected by lottery to compete in a televised battle in which only one person can survive.
