Before the advent of digital musical equipment, the national anthems played in the stadiums, were played with vinyl records or cassettes.It was not unheard of for the technicians to confuse national anthems during a medal ceremony. A serious diplomatic incident was narrowly avoided when the German authorities had the Egyptian anthem played at the 1936 Berlin games, for French wrestler Emile Poilvé's gold medal. Far from being a mistake, the Germans had done this on purpose.With the introduction of compact discs at the 1992 games, with the possibility to programme the music, this type of error should now be a thing of the past.
