The Athens Games marked the tenth anniversary of the revived Modern Games, but they had no official Olympic Games number. 

Norway won its first medals. 

Most important of all: the event was a success. The championships were held over a shorter period than before, attendance was big, and the world’s press was positive in its comments.
