The Greek assumed that Greece got the exclusive rights to organize the Games in the future, but de Coubertin (and the IOC) did not agree with that. Paris became the second home city for the Olympics. Because it was organised in combination with the Fifth Universal Exposition the Games became a sort of sidekick of the Universal Exposition and events were held over too long a period due to the exposition.

Despite that fact ànd the resistance of de Coubertin himself (!), the women made their entry at the Games: various sources talk about 6 to 23 women competing. The exact number is vague due tot the fact that sometimes an event was organised under the auspices of the World Exposition instead of the IOC. Some American sporters refused to compete on Sundays.
Especially this applied to Myer Prinstein who was leading the long jump competition on saterdays, but refused (or was forced to) to compete on Sundays in the final. He ended second.

With hinsight the combination of the Fifth Universal Exposition with the Olympic Games was one of the worst ideas of olympic history although it was an idea of de Coubertin himself. The commercial interests took the lead and the Olympic Games were off-off public attention. Consequences: few spectators at most events, no press attention, unclearness about the fact if an event was Olympic or not and last but not least a very bad administration regarding countries, facts, names of athletes, etc. In short a disgrace for the olympic movement.
