    Gold medals were not given at the 1900 Games; a silver medal was given for a first place and a bronze medal was given for second. The International Olympic Committee has retroactively assigned gold, silver, and bronze medals to competitors who earned 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes respectively in order to bring early Olympics in line with current awards.

    That is Wrong, there was Never a 1900 Olympics in Paris.
    There was a 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea and a 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. a 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada and 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France.

    How many games does it take to make an olympics by your definition?

    This seems likely since this was the only Olympics it has been contested in.

    Actually even more unique was that this was the first Olympics wherein women were allowed to participate.
