  1. France at the Olympics • French people refer to the Olympics as ‘Les Jeux Olympiques’ (the Olympic Games) or simply as ‘Les J.O.’ • France has participated in all the Olympics of the modern era. However, at the 1904 Olympics which were held in St Louis in the United States, there was only one French athlete. (In fact, some people say he was actually representing the United States and not France.)
