The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland did not send a team to the 1904 Summer Olympics in St. Louis, Missouri, United States. [Lucas, p.15: "England [sic] and France did not send a single competitor to America"] Numerous events were contested, of which only some were later recognized by the IOC as official Olympic events. Within these, two athletes representing Ireland participated, winning one gold and one silver medal. [Lucas, p.34: "John J. Daly, of Ireland, was the attraction"; p.40: "At the conclusion of the first day’s sport, a summing up of the points scored by the different countries competing showed that America led with a total of 80 points; Ireland was second with 4 points; Germany third with 3 points, and Hungary fourth with 2 points."] [Spalding, p.205: "T. F. Keily [sic] , Ireland, 6036 points"] Because Ireland was then part of the United Kingdom, the IOC classifies these athletes as British.
