  • Description

    In 1958 the People's Republic of China withdrew from Olympic competition leaving only Taiwan as the representative of the Chinese people. Now, twenty-one years later, the People's Republic is contemplating a return to international athletics. The attempt has met with resistance from Taiwan which insists on continuing to use it traditional name and the Republic of China national anthem. The problem will be examined more closely this week when Lord Killanin the International Olympic Committee (IOC) chairman meets with the IOC executive board in Nagoya, Japan.
