    Athens 1896

    The Official Report of the Athens 1896 Olympic Games consisted of two parts: “The Olympic Games in Ancient Times”, published before the Games, and “The Olympic Games in 1896”, published after the Games. Pierre de Coubertin was the co-author. The two volumes were published in four languages in the form of two bilingual editions, French-Greek and English-German. This official report was the subject of various new editions, the first one in 1941.

The stir around this victory followed him his whole life, so much so that he was selected as flag-bearer of the Greek delegation at the Berlin Games in 1936. ©IOC
