Games of the 321st Olympiad

Done! In your face, procrastina--- zzz...

Edit, 05:35 CST Thu 23 Feb 2006 - I did not know until I looked it up in Wikipedia that there were 293 ancient Olympiads spanning well over a millenium. I figured that the "28th" was only counting modern Olympiads (indeed, since 1893).

If we count Olympiads since the true 1st Panhellenic Olympiad in 776/775 BC, we are now in the 645th Olympiad, but there would have been more skipped than were actually held.
