Congratulations for your website. It is really helpful. One question please. You speak about special prizes and challenge prizes. In athens 1906 I do not see any reference on them. As far as I know winners have been given special awards. What do you know about that.
Thank you in advance
Commented by klausi1:Dear Angelos, in Athens 1906 many special prices were given to Olympic winners. In the Official Report 1906 from Savvidis ones can read what kinds of prices were awarded and who the donator was. My personal problem is, that the book is published only in Greek language. And also there are only some images from the 1906 special awards without any description.
I would like to offer you a correction on your table of short overall view of the Olympics. In the 1904 Olympic table you state that William H. Taft opened the Olympic Games. That is incorrect. The games were officially opened by David Rowland Francis, not William H. Taft.
Commented by klausi1:Yes, thank you John, you are right. I have changed the entry at once.

It's the best to have pages about olympic, especially in Indonesia, which less interest of olympic games, but what about the YOG, there's no page about it. It's more worthy if you add about the YOG.
Thanks for the Museum.
