The "Coubertin project" Paris 1900 : what might have been / Jean Durry

Durry, Jean

Paris is already looking forward to the Olympiad after the next, in 2024, and it is by no means too early to get acquainted with French Olympic history. Jean Durry, researched the Games of 1900 that the committee headed by Vicomte de La Rochefoucauld wanted to organise. Their plan was thwarted when the Exposition’s commissioner announced international sports competitions. The result is well known: the Games became an appendage, in which the term “Olympic” was out of place.
