Spotlight on the Olympics — Summer 2000

Now that Boston (right down the road from us) was being considered, albeit for a short time, for the 2024 Olympics, for the first time I might add, let’s take a look at the places where the Olympics have been held over the years.

2000 Summer Olympics — Widely proclaimed as one of the best Olympics ever held, the games took place in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia from September 15 through October 1st. Several medals were stripped from athletes because of drug-testing and other infractions. For instance, Lance Armstrong was stripped of his bronze medal recently, in January of 2013. These were the second Olympics held in the Spring. The USA won the medal count, with 93, 37 of which were gold.
