The1988 Summer Olympics, officially known as theGames of the XXIV Olympiad, were an internationalmulti-sport eventcelebrated from 17 September to 2 October 1988 inSeoul,South Korea. They were the second summer Olympic Games to be held in Asia and the first since the1964 Summer Olympicsheld in Tokyo, Japan. They were also the fourth Olympic Games to be held in autumn.
In the Seoul Games, 159 nations were represented by a total of 8391 athletes: 6197 men and 2194 women. 263 events were held and 27,221 volunteers helped to prepare the Olympics. 11,331 media (4978written pressand 6353broadcasters) showed the Games all over the world.
These were the last Olympic Games for two of the world's "dominating" sport powers, theSoviet UnionandEast Germany, as both ceased to exist before the next Olympic Games.
North Korea, still officially at war with South Korea, and its andSeychellesboycotted the games. For differing reasons,Ethiopia, Nicaragua, andAlbania(who declared an Olympic-record fourth consecutive boycott) did not participate in the Games. However, the much larger boycotts seen in the previous three Summer Olympics were avoided, resulting in the largest ever number of participating nations during the Cold War era.
