Unlike the modern Olympics, judges did not come from all over the Greek world, but were drawn from Elis, the local region which included Olympia. The number of judges increased to 10 as more events were added to the Olympics.

Although there are 53 Commonwealth countries, there are 71 Commonwealth Games Associations (CGAs) registered that can enter a team in the Commonwealth Games. This is because some Commonwealth countries have more than one CGA, in many cases due to their past histories as separate nations in their own rights. An example of this is the United Kingdom, which is now a single Commonwealth country, but which has seven CGAs, as Scotland, England, Northern Ireland, Wales, Isle of Man, Jersey, and Guernsey, all compete in the Games as separate nations.
The original Commonwealth Games in 1930 had 11 countries competing. The number of countries entering has steadily grown, with a few blips due to boycotts as a result of political pressure. Nigeria boycotted the 1978 Games in protest of New Zealand's sporting contacts with apartheid-era South Africa, and 32 of 59 nations from Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean boycotted the 1986 Commonwealth Games due to the Thatcher government's attitude towards South African sporting contacts. Boycotts were also threatened in 1974, 1982, and 1990 because of South Africa.
