I am not sure about the countries, but I will try to answer the financal part of the question. Somewhere on the internet I read, that on Olympics in Atlanta (which in were in the 1996 btw.) Americans spent 1.7 billion $ (cca. 1.5 billion € than) and on the games in London buget is 2.375 billion pounds (that is more than 3 billion €). So numbers vary a lot.

In western Greece women were not allowed to compete in the Olympic games.
