Talk:1920 Summer Olympics
|WikiProject Olympics||(Rated Start-class, High-importance)|
The winter Olympic games were established only in 1924. So isn't calling 1920 Olympic games as 1920 Summer games represents an inacurat and biased version.
- Under that argument, the page for World War I shouldn't be called that since it wasn't called that at the time. It was only called World War I in about 1940. Naraht 14:09, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
- I'd like to bring this topic back up, because while the WW1 comparison is compelling, but it's a little inapt. These games contained winter sports, so calling this the summer games brings into question whether or not competitors in Ice Hockey, Figure Skating, won a Summer Olympic medal, or just an Olympic Medal. Distinguishing it as a Summer Olympic medal (as this article would be doing in its title.) would be statistically important. i.e. Gillis Grafström has won a gold medal in both Summer and Winter Olympics?

Can these games really have been opened in April 1920, as this article and others on the Web claim? Why would any Games last five months? And why does the programme pictured here state in French that it ran from August to September, which seems more likely?
- The opening ceremony was held in April, though the Games themselves were held in August and September. The Games being held over long periods of time wasn't actually uncommon in the early years of the contests; the 1900 Summer Olympics were held between May and October while the 1904 Summer Olympics were held between July and November. -- Jonel (Speak to me) 03:11, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Flag of India
I wonder why this article has British_Raj_Red_Ensign.svg.png as the flag and India at the 1920 Summer Olympics has India-Viceroy-1885.svg.png as the flag? They can't both be right flags, can they? 18.104.22.168 (talk) 03:37, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
