FSFI - Fédération Sportive Féminine Internationale

The Fédération Sportive Féminine Internationale (FSFI) was founded on 31.10.1921 by Alice Milliat and representatives from four other countries. On 20.08.1922, the FSFI organized its first Olympic Games for Women (on the program only Athletics) with five participating countries in Paris FRA. Later, this event was renamed in pressure of the IOC in World Games for Women.
Although the IOC allowed women's competitions in athletics for the first time in 1928, the FSFI was unsatisfactory with the number of disciplines. The FSFI continued to organize its own World Games for Women:
27.-29.08.1926 in Göteborg SWE (only Athletics)
06.-08.09.1930 in Praha TCH (Athletics, Basketball, Field Handball and Házená)
09.-11.08.1934 in London GBR (Athletics, Basketball and Házená) - 19 participating countries
On 06.08.1936, the last FSFI congress took place. A few days later on 10.08.1938, the IAAF integrated the FSFI on its own congress. Officially, the IAAF took over the responsibility for women's athletics on 01.01.1937. The planned 5th World Games for Women (1938) were no longer held.
