Abstract

The attack on Israeli athletes by the Palestinian Black September group during the 1972 Munich Olympic Games highlighted that sporting events and teams can be the targets of terrorism. It has led to a high level of security at all subsequent Olympic Games. Other sporting teams have also been the subject of terrorist attacks, notably the Toga football team and the Sri Lankan cricket team. Other sporting teams, such as the New Zealand cricket team touring Pakistan, have found themselves in places which have the subject to an attack, even though they themselves were not the actual target. The attack on Christchurch mosque could have restulted in casualties amongst the touring Bangladesh cricket team and highlighted that no region or country is free of potential terrorist attacks.
