Spotlight on the Olympics — Summer 1900

Now that Boston (right down the road from us) was briefly considered 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.

Summer 1900 — The games of the Second Olympiad were held in Paris, France. They were run in conjunction with the World’s Fair of 1900 and so lasted from May 14th to October 28th. This was the first Olympics in which women competed. France won the overall medal count with 101 and the French also garnered the most gold (26).
