1904
St Louis
United States

Gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded for first, second and third place for the first time in 1904.

As in Paris, the Games were not the main focus of the 1904 Olympics, as they were held over four and a half months during the Saint Louis World's Fair.

The National Archives holds records related to the St Louis Exhibition, as well as sporting illustrations from the time.
