Nowadays, the Olympics have become the pinnacle of bad organization and corruption and huge stadiums and facilities that gather dust. Apart from corrupt politicians and hubristic corrupt Olympic officials, no one wants to host Olympics. All it does is waste billions of public money. Its a hotbed of doping, brown envelopes and political point scoring.
On the other hand, it does bring different species together – no way Bolt or Phelps are human.
But it wasn’t always such an omnishambles.
It used to be worse.
Case in point – St Louis Olympics of 1904
