The 2008 Olympics in Beijing will be called the 29th Olympiad. They are actually numbered as if they were held every four years. For example, the cancelled 1916 Olympics would have been the 6th, but the 1920 Olympics were called the 7th. The Olympics were skipped in 1916, 1940 and 1944 due to the wars. So the 29th Olympiad will really be the 26th modern Olympics.
The 1916 Games (The Games of the VI Olympiad) were canceled because of World War One. The 1940 and 1944 Games (the Games of the XII and XIII Olympiads) were canceled because of World War Two.
