Britain decides to join Moscow Olympics

Britain decides to join Moscow Olympics

Today, in the year 1980, the British Olympic Association decided to join the Olympic Games in Moscow in July of that year despite opposition and pressure from the British government. The UK's 15 sports associations had decided to join the Olympics, but the Hockey Federation opposed it. The British government was boycotting Moscow Olympic Games, Because the then Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan and sent its troops there. Many western countries, including the United States and Britain, decided to boycott the Olympic Games due to this. But in response, the British Olympic Association President Sir Dennis said that "I am very sympathetic to the British government's side but we believe that it should work to add the game as a bridge rather than breaking it." UK While expressing regret over the decision of the Olympic Association, the government had not decided to send any British official to Moscow, nor did the British players go to the British government. No funding should be decided. The International Olympic Committee also condemned the decision to boycott many countries, and said the game should be kept separate from politics. Nor did the British government decide to give any financial assistance to the British government. The International Olympic Committee also condemned the decision to boycott many countries, and said the game should be kept separate from politics. Nor did the British government decide to give any financial assistance to the British government. The International Olympic Committee also condemned the decision to boycott many countries, and said the game should be kept separate from politics.
