men's eights was one of four rowing events on the Rowing at the
1908 Summer Olympics programme. 6 boats from 5 nations competed.
Rowing at the Summer Olympics has been part of the competition
since the 1900 Summer Olympics. Rowing was on the program at the
1896 Summer Olympics but was cancelled due to bad weather. Only men
were allowed to compete until the women's events were introduced at
the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal. Lightweight rowing events
(which have weight-limited crews) were introduced to the games in
1996. Qualifying for the rowing events is under the jurisdiction of
the International Rowing Federation (or FISA, its French acronym).
FISA predates the modern Olympics and was the first international
sport federation to join the modern Olympic movement.
