Antwerp Sports: 1920 Summer Olympics (poster)


Belgian-hosted international multi-sport event held in 1920 in Antwerp, officially known today as the Games of the VII Olympiad. The United States won the most gold and overall medals. The sailing events were held in Ostend, Belgium, and two in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

These Olympics were the first in which the Olympic Oath was voiced, the first in which doves were released to symbolize peace, and the first in which the Olympic Flag was flown.
