The history of Taiwan's involvement in the games has less to do with sport than with politics. At the Rome games in 1960 for instance, nationalist China had to parade under the name Formosa.On Montreal in 1976 Chinese politics once again became an Olympic issue. The Canadian government, which has an excellent trading relationship with the Peoples' Republic of China, refused to allow Taiwan to take part in the games. Despite a last minute agreement signed between the IOC and the Canadian government allowing Taiwan to take part under its own flag the Taiwanese had had enough and went home.
