Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

The Union of South Africa competed at the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome, Italy. 55 competitors, 53 men and 2 women, took part in 46 events in 12 sports.[1] After these Olympics, the International Olympic Committee banned South Africa from the Olympic Movement over the policy of apartheid, making these the last Olympics at which South Africa would compete until the repeal of apartheid and the 1992 Summer Olympics.
