How many countries will participate in Olympics 2024 Athletes from Paris participated in Tokyo Olympics 2020

Countries participating in the Olympics: Olympics is the biggest sports event in the world. These games started in 1896 and were first organized in Athens, Greece. In 1896, only 14 countries participated in the Olympic Games, most of which were European countries. But time progressed and this number crossed 100 and then 200. Talking about the present time, a total of 206 committees are enrolled in the International Olympic Committee. But it is a noteworthy fact that countries do not participate in the Olympic Games. Let us know what this means?

National Olympic Committees, not countries, participate

In the Olympic Games, you must have often seen that athletes are representing the flag of a particular country. But according to the official website of the Olympics, not 206 countries but athletes from 206 National Olympic Committees are participating in these games. Talking about Paris Olympics 2024, this time a total of 10,672 athletes from 196 Olympic Committees will be participating in the Olympic Games.

The Olympic Refugee Team will also be one of the 196 Olympic committees. This team includes those athletes who are not getting any help from their country. For example, the Taliban government in Afghanistan recently refused to recognize 3 female athletes. In such a situation, it is possible that these 3 athletes will be seen representing the Olympic Refugee Team.
