1956 Summer Olympics: Definition and links. (291 words)
The Games of the XVI Olympiad were held in 1956 in Melbourne, Australia, although the equestrian[?] events could not be held in Australia due to quarantine regulations.
Therefore, these events were held in Stockholm, Sweden, marking the second, and so far last time, that events of the same Olympics were held in different countries.
Because Melbourne is situated in the southern hemisphere, the Olympics are held late in the year.
