Colombia at the 1932 Summer Olympics

Colombia competed in the Summer Olympic Games for the first time at the 1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, United States. Two people traveled to represent Colombia musician Emirto de Lima and marathon runner Jorge Perry.[1] Colombia did not have an Olympic committee but agreed to sponsor Perry to train in America for four months before the event.[2] He did not finish the marathon after feeling faint after the first 10 km.[3]
