The 1904 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the III Olympiad, were held in St. Louis, Missouri, United States.[1]

The games were part of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition (St. Louis World's Fair). The sports events were not well planned; and the games were not thought to be a success.[2]

Participating nations[change | edit source]

Athletes from 12 nations took part in the St. Louis games.

The American bicyclist Frank Bizzoni was also known as a competitor from Italy[3] The American wrestlers Charles Ericksen and Bernhof Hansen were also known as Norwegian competitors.[4]
