An international peace march
SINCE the beginning of the ancient games in 776BC and the revival of the games in 1896, athletes were not permitted to march in the closing ceremony.
At the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games, the president of the IOC Avery Brundage agreed to change the rules and allow the athletes to march in the closing ceremony. The athletes did not march in team order as they did in the opening ceremony but would enter the stadium as one Olympic Nation. It is a tradition which has been adopted ever since.
It was the first time in Olympic history when athletes were permitted to march in the closing ceremony. It should also be noted that it was the first international Peace March to be staged in the history of mankind.
