Explanation:

[STC002483] The first Olympic Games to be held in the United States were held in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1904. This made St. Louis the first city in the United States to host the international athletic event. The Olympic bid was originally won by Chicago, but it was moved to St. Louis after organizers of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition (aka the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair) announced they wouldn’t accept a rival international event happening at the same time. The prospect that the World’s Fair would have a separate athletic competition that was in direct conflict with the games caused the games to be moved to St. Louis, where they were held over the course of four and a half months.
