This Day in History: 1904 – The Third Olympiad of the modern era, and the first Olympic Games to be held in the United States, opens in St. Louis, Missouri.
Fact of the Day: The 1904 Olympic Games were originally awarded to Chicago, Illinois, but were later given to St. Louis, Missouri to be staged in connection with the St. Louis World Exposition. Like the Second Olympiad, held in Paris in 1900, the St. Louis Games were poorly organized and managed, and were far overshadowed by the world’s fair.
#StrangeButTrue: The word gymnasium is derived from the Greek word gymnos, which actually means “naked.” Why, you ask? Competitors in ancient Olympiads competed in the nude. Their bodies were symbols of eternal beauty, manifesting the symbiosis of the body and the soul.
