205 countries competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympic games. Originally, 206 registered, but Brunei dropped out. This was the highest number of countries in the history of the modern Olympics.

Generally the sports in the Olympics do not change much but have through out history I'm sure. I doubt the Greco-Romans competed in taekwando or the balance beam.
