First of all the Olympic games do not take place every year, They take place every four years. So the last Olympic games were in 2012, in the city of London. The next Olympic games will take place is in 2016 in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro.

Secondly, depending on how well each Athlete performs in the qualifying rounds for the Olympic ggames along with the best performers are sent to represent their countries and it is this that amounts to the total amount representing a country. For example Australia sent 410 Athletes at the London 2012 Summer Olympics - 224 Men and 186 Women.
