Olympic Trivia: Two nations, One team

Published on December 4th, 2020

During the early days of the Olympic Movement, Australia and New Zealand were represented jointly by one International Olympic Committee member for “Australasia”. They even competed as a joint Australasian team, during the Olympics at London 1908 and Stockholm 1912, using a special flag. When the Games resumed at Antwerp in 1920 after World War One, the two nations sent separate teams.
