1976-07 Olympics Montreal
  • The 1976 Montreal Summer Olympics open in Montreal, Canada. Twenty-nine countries, mostly African, boycotted the Montreal Games when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) refused to ban New Zealand, after their national rugby union team had toured South Africa earlier in 1976 in defiance of the United Nations' calls for a sporting embargo.
  • TV: BBC One, 7.50 pm Olympic Grandstand. [1]
