26 African countries boycotted the Games in response to New Zealand's inclusion. Earlier that year a New Zealand team had undertaken a three-month rugby tour of the racially segregated South Africa, but the IOC refused to ban them.

The Soviet Union lead the medal count, followed by the U.S. and East Germany. See the 1976 Medal Count.
