Cambodia At The 1956 Summer Olympics

*As Khmer Republic

Cambodia competed in the Olympic Games for the first time at the 1956 Summer Olympics. Cambodia did not send any athletes to Melbourne, Australia where most of the Games events were held, but two Cambodian riders competed in the equestrian events held in Stockholm, Sweden earlier that year.

Famous quotes containing the word summer:

    Back now to autumn, leaving the ended husk
    Of summer that brought them here for Show Saturday
    The men with hunters, dog-breeding wool-defined women,
    Children all saddle-swank, mugfaced middleaged wives
    Glaring at jellies, husbands on leave from the garden
    Watchful as weasels, car-tuning curt-haired sons
    Back now, all of them, to their local lives....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
