Switzerland boycotted the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, Australia because of the Soviet Union's invasion of Hungary. However, the equestrian events were held in Stockholm, Sweden earlier in the year because of Australian quarantine laws. The Swiss team competed in Stockholm, winning a bronze medal.
