Overview

If one had to nominate the "worst modern Olympics" ever, 1900 and 1904 would surely lead the voting. In 1900, Paris hosted a great world's fair, the Exposition Universelle Internationale de 1900 à Paris. Coubertin made plans to hold the Olympics as part of the fair and planned to organize the events. But the organizers of the fair relegated Coubertin to a relatively minor administrative position and took over the organization of the sporting events connected with the fair.
