1904 Summer Olympics

The Games of the III Olympiad were held in 1904 in St. Louis, USA. The organizers repeated all of the mistakes of 1900. The Olympic competitions, spread out over four and a half months, were lost in the chaos of a World's Fair. Of the 94 events generally considered to have been part of the Olympic program, only 42 included athletes who were not from the United States.
