ANI Answer

In the 1980 Moscow Olympics A U.S.-led boycott reduced the number of participating nations to 80, the lowest number since 1956. Aleksandr Dityatin earned medals in every men's gymnastics event to become the only athlete ever to win eight medals in one Olympics. Super-heavyweight Teófilo Stevenson became the first boxer to win the same division three times. Gerd Wessig became the first male high jumper to break the world record at the Olympics and swimmer Vladimir Salnikov broke the 15-minute barrier for the 1,500m. In adramatic confrontation, runners Steve Ovett and Sebastian Coe split the 800 and 1,500m.

The U.S. doesn't have the power to completely boycott an Olympic Event, however they do have enough influence and followers to ruin it for any city they feel like.

80 NOCs (Nations)

5,179 athletes (1,115 women, 4,064 men)

203 events

5,615 media (2,685 written press, 2,930 broadcasters)
