    Background: August 14, with the Olympic Games only 11 days distant, athletes from many lands were arriving in Rome.

    At Ciampino Airport, Egyptian and Rumanian competitors came off the planes and into buses which were to carry them to the Olympic Village. American men and women followed them shortly afterwards - and there was a general get-together of Americans, Japanese, Egyptians, and Filipinos.

    Some athletes were already acclimatising themselves to the conditions in which they will strive for fame and medals. At the Olympic Pool, British swimmers and divers were going through their paces.
