Description

As Samuel L. Jackson said in “Pulp Fiction”, “What ain’t no country I ever heard of.” Yet sometimes, Ancient Olympic champions are from countries we haven’t heard of. The sources are filled with gaps - sometimes literally, as partially decayed scrolls are sometimes the sole source of information. All athletes for which we do not know the full country name (sometimes we know a few letters) are listed under this nation.

Two competitors in the modern Olympics also represented unknown nations: two artists competing in 1912 Stockholm are as of yet unidentified: A. Laffen and Fritz Eccard.
