Just 11 journalists covered the 1896 games in Athens. Over 15,000 of them will be there to report on the exploits of the athletes at the Sydney games in 2000.These figures highlight the difference between the games then and now - they began as a friendly, fairly upper class meeting, but have since become the world's greatest sports and media event.These days, two-thirds of the entire population of the planet will be rooting for the athletes for the two weeks.In the early 20th century, there were only newspapers to carry the results, but the arrival of radio after World War One and television in the 60s have turned the Olympics into a media festival.At Atlanta, the Internet made its appearance, and in the years to come it should help keep people even better informed of the latest Olympic news.In 1998, the Nagano web site received over 650 million visitors from all over the world, while 35 million surfers went to consult the official sites during the Sydney Games, leaving 9 billion page impressions.
