The Twenty-first Olympic Games were held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada
in the summer of 1976.
Twenty eight countries including Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and
Zambia boycotted the games due to the participation of New Zealand
whose national rugby team (The All Blacks) continued to play Ruby
Union with South Africa. Due to its apartheid policies South Africa
had been banned from Olympics participation since 1964. Neither the
Republic of China or The Peoples Republic of China attended because
of issues over each other's legitimacy.
