Although it is often claimed that Britain is one of the few countries to have attended every games, you have to remember that until 1906 athletes competed individually, not for their country. At St Louis, in 1904, there were three Irish athletes. As the whole of Ireland was at that time part of the United Kingdom, it can be said that they were technically British. However the parts of Ireland that they came from are now in the Republic of Ireland, and not part of the UK, so Britain's claim to have been present at the 1904 Olympic Games is at least tenuous.
