It was held as an appendage of the Worlds Fair so loads of cool things were going on.
- Events included: hot air ballooning, delivery van driving, kite flying, life saving, firefighting, poodle clipping and an underwater obstacle course in the Seine.
- Gold medals were not given - a silver medal was given for a first place and a bronze medal was given for second.
- The guy who won the long jump got punched in the face for winning.
- The French totally cheated at the marathon even though the guy who won it for France was actually a citizen of Luxembourg.
"Arthur Newton of the United States finished fifth but stated he had not been passed by any other runner during the race. Another American, Richard Grant, claimed he was run down by a cyclist as he made ground on the leaders."
