Description

The 1900 Olympic Games have been termed ""The Farcical Games."" The events were poorly organized and years later many of the competitors had no idea that they had actually competed in the Olympics. They only knew that they had competed in an international sporting event in Paris in 1900. No official records of the 1900 Olympics exist.Based primarily on 1,900 sources, the sites, dates, events, competitors, and nations as well as the event, the results are compiled herein for all of the 1,900 Olympic events, including archery, track and field, cricket, equestrian, fencing, soccer, pelota basque, water polo, and rowing, among other sports.
