Burma to Send Four Athletes to Olympics
16 May 2012
Burma will field just four athletes in this summer’s London Olympics, according to a report by the Democratic Voice of Burma. Citing an official from the government’s Sports and Physical Education Department, the report said the athletes would compete in shooting, archery and rowing events. Burma competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics in archery, swimming, rowing and track and field events but failed to win any medals. The 2012 London Olympics Games, which start on July 27, will host more than 10,000 athletes from around 200 countries.
