  • Description

    The forty members of the Rhodesian Olympic team have settled into their quarters at the Games Village in Munich. The Rhodesians -- who have seven African competitors in their team -- have been surrounded by controversy over their participation in the Games.

    Tanzania, Zambia and Sierra Leone are reported to have withdrawn from the Olympics in protest.

    The West German Olympics Committee accepted Rhodesia's entry with the proviso that it marched under the British flag and to the British national anthem.

    The Rhodesian athletes have refused to talk politics with reporters.
