EXHIBITION, UNIVERSAL
On three occasions the famous Universal Exhibition has taken place in the same year in the country that is organising the games.Such was the case in Paris in 1900 where the Parisians attached more importance to the exhibition than to the games themselves. As a result, they lasted for more than five months.This again happened four years later in Saint Louis in Missouri at the request of president Roosevelt.Finally in Barcelona in 1992, the games did not suffer from rivalry with the Universal Exhibition in Seville. The two events were not held at the same time. Furthermore, the two cities are several hundred kilometres apart.
