== == Ancient Olympic Games included representatives of different city states in ancient Greece. Although athletes from any country could compete they had to be free men and had to speak greek. Athletes from Rome and Armenia are known to have competed. It is not clear exactly how many countries took part. Only myth has survived.

The only real difference is the countries that are invited to participate. All countries that have a National Olympic Committee may send athletes to the Olympic Games. All countries that are members of the Commonwealth of Nations or are a territory of a member of the Commonwealth of Nations may send athletes to the Commonwealth Games. There are a few sports competed in the Commonwealth Games that are not competed in the Olympics (lawn bowls, squash, and netball). Olympic sports canoeing, sailing, and volleyball have never been competed in the Commonwealth Games.

Australia and Greece are the only two countries who have participated in every Summer Olympics Games.

Explanation: The first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896 in Athens. A Frenchman, Pierre de Coubertin initiated the revival of these ancient games. Only 14 countries participated and approximately 241 male athletes competed.

not all countries competed but normally all contries are invited to take part

Assuming modern Olympic games (not ancient Greece) There is still some discrepencies in how many countries competed as national teams werent recognised like they are now, however the 14 most likely teams are Australia; Austria; Bulgaria; Chile; Denmark; France; Germany; Great Britain; Greece; Hungary; Sweden; Switzerland & the USA
