The 1960 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XVII Olympiad, were an international multi-sport event held from 25 August to 11 September 1960 in Rome, Italy. Rome had previously been awarded the administration of the 1908 Summer Olympics, but following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 1906, the city had no choice but to decline and pass the honour to London. The Soviet Union won the most gold and overall medals at the 1960 Games.
The 1900 Summer Olympics, today officially known as the Games of the II Olympiad, was an international multi-sport event that took place in Paris, France, in 1900. No opening or closing ceremonies were held; competitions began on 14 May and ended on 28 October.
At the 1900 Summer Olympics, five equestrian events were contested. Three of these had been considered "Olympic" by the International Olympic Committee in the past. The IOC website currently has affirmed a total of 95 medal events, after accepting, as it appears, the recommendation of Olympic historian Bill Mallon for events that should be considered "Olympic". These additional events include the other two equestrian events. It is not certain how many competitors there were, but it is likely that there were between 37 and 64. Calculation of number of competitors is complicated by the fact that a rider might enter an event multiple times on different horses. Five nations competed in the Olympic jumping events, with three more in the other two competitions. There were two female riders: Elvira Guerra, who competed in the hacks and hunter combined event, as well as a Frenchwoman "Moulin", whose first name is not known.
At the 1900 Summer Olympics one gymnastics event for men was contested. The competition was held on Sunday, 29 July 1900, and on Monday, 30 July 1900. There were 135 competitors from 8 nations. The top 18 places were taken by French gymnasts, of which there were more than 100. The event was won by Gustave Sandras, with Noël Bas finishing second and Lucien Démanet third. The highest-placing foreign gymnast was Jules Ducret of Switzerland, in a tie for 19th place.
France was the host of the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris. France was one of many nations that had competed in the 1896 Summer Olympics in Greece and had returned to compete at the 1900 Games.
Belgium competed at the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris, France. It was the first appearance of the European nation. Belgium was represented in France by 78 athletes, all of them male, who competed in 11 disciplines. They comprised 95 entries in 28 events.
Germany competed at the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris, France.
Italy has competed at all the modern Olympic Games.
France has competed in every modern Olympic Games, although its participation at the 1904 Games is questionable, with Albert Corey's appearance being credited by different sources to either the United States or France. The IOC has determined that his affiliation was to the United States of America.
The Russian Empire competed at the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris. It was the first appearance of the European nation, which had entered the names of competitors for the first modern Olympics in 1896 but had failed to appear.
France was the host nation for the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris. It was the second time that France had hosted the Games, after the 1900 Summer Olympics, also in Paris. 401 competitors, 373 men and 28 women, took part in 128 events in 20 sports.
France competed at the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm, Sweden. 119 competitors, 118 men and 1 woman, took part in 66 events in 13 sports.
Italy competed at the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp, Belgium. 174 competitors, 173 men and 1 woman, took part in 79 events in 18 sports.
Italy competed at the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris, France. 200 competitors, 196 men and 4 women, took part in 93 events in 18 sports.
Belgium was the host nation for the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp. 336 competitors, 326 men and 10 women, took part in 121 events in 23 sports.
The jumping event at the 1900 Summer Olympics equestrian competition was similar to the modern event. 45 competitors entered, though only 37 competed. Some information is known on 16 of the competitors, though of the rest all that can be deduced from the nationalities of the entrants is that, of the remaining unknowns that did compete, at most 1 was a Russian, up to 3 were Italian, at least 3 and up to 9 were Belgian, and between 8 and 14 were French. The event was won by Aimé Haegeman of Belgium, with his countryman Georges Van Der Poele taking second. Van Der Poele also won the bronze in the equestrian high jumping competition. Louis de Champsavin of France earned bronze.
The 1900 Summer Olympics was the only Olympic Games to date to feature an equestrian high jump competition. Nineteen competitors entered the high jump competition, though only six are known by name. Of the remaining thirteen, six were French, three Belgian, three Italian and one Russian.
The 1900 Summer Olympics was the only Olympic Games to date to feature an equestrian long jump competition]]. Of the seventeen competitors who entered, eight are known by name; of the rest, six were French and one was Belgian. The event was won by Constant van Langhendonck of Belgium, with silver going to Gian Giorgio Trissino of Italy and bronze to Camille de La Forgue de Bellegarde of France.
The "mail coach" or "four-in-hand" was an equestrian event at the 1900 Summer Olympics. There were 31 entrants listed for the event; all 29 of them are known by name. Beyond the top four competitors, it is unknown how many of the 31 entrants actually competed. The event was won by Georges Nagelmackers of Belgium. Silver went to Léon Thome and bronze to Jean de Neuflize, both of France.
Count Giovanni Giorgio Trissino was an Italian horse rider who won the first gold medal af the history for Italy at the Olympic Games in Paris 1900.
