Khmer Republic At The 1972 Summer Olympics

*As Khmer Republic

Cambodia competed at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany. The nation returned to the Olympic Games as the Khmer Republic (1970–1975) after missing the 1968 Summer Olympics. Owing to the troubled situation of the country Cambodia would not compete again until the 1996 Summer Olympics.

Famous quotes containing the words summer and/or republic:

    The awful shadow of some unseen Power
    Floats though unseen among us, visiting
    This various world with as inconstant wing
    As summer winds that creep from flower to flower;
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    Who is this Renaissance? Where did he come from? Who gave him permission to cram the Republic with his execrable daubs?
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
