|MEXICO CITY， July 9 (Xinhua) -- The second edition of the Olympic Games， held in Paris 1900， was part of the 1900 Exposition Universelle， turning the sporting event into a disaster and leaving many doubts about its officialdom.
Due to the success of the first edition， the modern Olympics dignitary， Baron Pierre de Coubertin， decided to hold the Games in his home country， under the illusion that Paris could help to elevate the sporting event's popularity around the world.
However， in view of the French capital hosting the world's fair at the same time， it was not equipped to organize the Olympics as well. For that reason， the Olympics took place for over five months， minimizing the competition and almost dampening public interest.
This Olympics did not have appropriate facilities and the athletes， upon their arrival in Paris， found that accommodation had not even been reserved for them. The German delegation had to roam the Parisian streets for several hours as no one wanted to host them.
Worse still， no official prizes were handed out to the champions. Many of the participants died without knowing whether they had competed in the Olympics or not since the 1900 edition was presented as competitions， festivals and other events within the Exposition Universelle.
Even though publicity had improved during the turn of the century， the world's fair overshadowed these Games to the point that there wasn't even a single official poster. Only a few posters referencing the exhibition's contests still exist even though these were actually from the Games.
The Games of the II Olympiad took place between May 14 and October 28 in the Velodrome de Vincennes without an official Opening Ceremony.
In the sporting event there were 997 athletes from 24 countries and regions who competed in 85 events from 20 disciplines.
Perhaps， the most noteworthy thing to come from the Paris Olympics was that women participated for the first time， with 22 athletes.
Despite increasing the number of nations and sports， this Olympics was much less important than the previous one.
Athletics suffered the negative consequences more than any other discipline from such a badly organized event. The track was a 500-meter oval where the final straight had a certain incline and more than one bump. Also， in the javelin and discus throwing events were held in wooded areas.
Despite all this， the U.S. athlete Alvin Kraenzlein， won the 60 meters， 110 meters hurdle， 200 meters hurdle and long jump. He is the only track-and-field athlete in the history of the Games to have won four individual gold medals in a single event at an Olympics.
The first woman to win an event at an Olympics was the British tennis player， Carlota Cooper.
It is worth mentioning that tennis was one of the five sports where teams were made up of athletes from different countries. The other four sports were soccer， polo， rowing and tug-of-war.
Once the Olympics had come to an end， Coubertin said "if the Olympic movement survived these Games it would be a miracle."
However， the miracle happened.

RUSSIA held on to its position as China’s top crude oil supplier ahead of Angola and Saudi Arabia for the seventh straight month in September Thomas Davis Sr Panthers Jersey , with shipments hitting a record as refiners rushed to buy lower-sulfur oil to meet cleaner fuels standards.
Imports from Russia last month were almost 6.35 million tons, or 1.545 million barrels per day (bpd), up 60.5 percent from the same month last year Greg Olsen Panthers Jersey , according to a detailed breakdown of commodity trade data released by the General Administration of Customs.
For the first three quarters of the year, crude volumes from Russia gained 18 percent year on year to nearly 45 million tons, or 1.2 million bpd Kawann Short Panthers Jersey , also holding firm its top ranking.
The lower cost of Russian crude and China’s shift to cleaner diesel was the key driver behind the record Russian oil purchases.
“Many teapot refineries are not equipped with hydrotreating units to cut down sulfur. That means they need to import crude with lower sulfur content to meet the cleaner diesel quality,” said Harry Liu of consultancy IHS Markit.
The widening spread between Brent-linked crudes and Middle Eastern benchmark Dubai also made Russia’s ESPO grade, priced off Dubai Trai Turner Panthers Jersey , relatively attractive, Liu added.
Meanwhile, Angola Ryan Kalil Panthers Jersey , China’s second-largest source of crude, supplied 11.7 percent more oil than a year earlier at 4.677 million tons, or 1.14 million bpd. Angola also maintained second place for the January-September supplies ahead of Saudi.
Supplies from Saudi Arabia were up 9.6 percent last month year on year at 4.276 million tons Luke Kuechly Panthers Jersey , or about 1.04 million bpd.
Shipments for the January-September period dipped 0.6 percent year on year at 38.52 million tons, or 1.03 million bpd.
Russian supplies could climb further next year as privately-run conglomerate CEFC China Energy agreed earlier this month to buy 220,000 to 260 Cam Newton Panthers Jersey ,000 bpd of oil from Rosneft, as part of a US$9.1 billion investment in the world’s largest listed oil company.
Shipments from Iran were up 59 percent last month from a year earlier to 3.22 million tons, or 784 Donte Jackson Panthers Jersey ,060 bpd.
U.S. supplies last month were 120,580 bpd, up 260 .
