Description:
After visiting Africa and Europe, the Mediterranean Games were for the first time held in Asia in the Lebanese capital of Beirut, thus completing the trio of continents belonging to the Mediterranean Sea. Around a thousand athletes (all men) represented thirteen countries.

The Games, held from October 11 to 23, were a success, arguably thanks to the President of the Lebanese Olympic Committee, who was also the president of the Mediterranean Games Committee.

At the end of the competition, France was on top again. The United Arab Republic (UAR), participating for the first time, came in second, and Turkey came third.
