Baron Pierre de Coubertin in 1896
Clothing has always been a part of the Modern Era of the Olympic Games since they were first instituted in 1896.Nudity was only part of the Ancient Olympics. It was considered good form to look good in the nude then--not only was it considered a sign that a man cared about his body but was also seen as a tribute to the gods.
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.
