London Olympics


The National Sports Committee was officially recognised in June 1947 by the International Olympic Committee, presided over at the time by J.S. Edström. Because of this, it was able to receive invitations from the organising committees for the London and St Moritz Olympics scheduled for 1948 so that representatives of the Principality could be entered.




The Monegasques competed in the Summer Olympics the XIV edition of which took place in London from 29th July to 14th August 1948.
