  • Description

    The Rhodesian team selected for the Olympics will stay on in Munich as spectators in spite of the decision by the International Olympic Committee to exclude them as competitors. The President of the Rhodesian National Olympic Committee, Mr Grant Stuart, said after the announcement on Tuesday night that the team members were bitterly disappointed at the decision. He said the Rhodesians felt their exclusion was entirely political. The 100 voted by 36 votes to 31 to exclude the Rhodesians in the face of a threatened walk-out by 27 African nations.
