No. Chicago was selected to hos the Summer Olympics in 1904, but due to the immensely popular 1904 World's Fair and Louisiana Purchase Exposition taking place in St Louis that same summer, it was decided to move the games there.
Para, as in parallel. It means parallel to the Olympics, or working alongside the Olympics.
Paralympic is a combination of the words "paraplegic" (people with spinal injuries) and "Olympics". Another more formal explanation is "para" is Greek for beside or alongside and the Paralympics are held at the same time as the Olympics.....parallel/alongside.
They were to host the winter and summer games of 1940; they were cancelled. They were only one of 5 countries to host both winter and summer Olympics (alongside USA, France, Canada, and Italy). They alos brought Judo (the gentle way) to the Olympics. They contested in may Olympics and are good and many sports.
All horse related events e.g show jumping, but that is the only one.
Florence Griffith-Joyner won three gold medals and a silver on the track at the 1988 Olympics. Alongside her 100m abd 200m victories are a gold in the 4x100m relay and a silver in the 4x400m relay.
This question is not easy to answer. For starters, it depends upon what was meant by "olympics." I have found no record of Native Americans participating in Olympics prior to 1904 and that is the rub. The 1904 Olympics were held in conjunction with the St. Louis World's Fair (officially called the Louisiana Purchase Centennial Exposition) and included competitions not normally considered olympic events, such as Anthropology Days in which indigeneous people from several countries competed against each other in competitions in which they were unfamiliar. The answer being sought is probably Frank Pierce, younger brother of Carlisle Indian School football immortals, Bemus and Hawley Pierce, who competed in the marathon. However, that answer may be technically incorrect if nonstandard events are included. For more on Native American participation in the early Olympics refer to my blog in which I am running a series on that subject: www.TomBenjey.WordPress.com.

The summer olympics happens every four years but in between those four years, the winter olympics would occur on the second year. For example: summer olympics-2000 winter olympics-2002 summer olympics-2004 winter olympics-2006 summer olympics-2008 winter olympics-2010 summer olympics-2012 winter olympics -2014 etc......
Same as the 2008 Olympics, and the 2004 Olympics, and the Olympics before that. and every other 4 years since the Olympics started.
There are five types of Olympics which are- 1-Summer Olympics 2-Winter Olympics 3-Paralympics (for disabled people) 4-Youth Olympics 5-Special Olympics
the para-olympics are different to the olympics because the only people who participate in the para-olympics are people with problems whereas in the olympics the people dont have problems
There is no 2010 Summer Olympics. The Olympics in 2010 was a Winter Olympics that took place in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The next summer Olympics after the 2010 Winter Olympics is the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
