1934 British Empire Games
(4-11 August, London, England)
Originally scheduled for Johannesburg, South Africa, the II Games were hosted by London, in order to avoid a political crisis over South Africa’s ‘Apartheid’ policy and its implications on visiting Commonwealth athletes and officials.
Sixteen nations sent a total of about 500 competitors to the London Games. In addition to the 11 nations who had competed at the 1930 Hamilton Games, the participants making their debuts at the London Games were Hong Kong, India, Jamaica, Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) and Trinidad. This was also to be the last time that Newfoundland took part in the Games independent of Canada.
Six sports were featured in the Games – athletics, boxing, cycling, lawn bowls, swimming and diving, and wrestling.
