The Liberty Bell Classic (often referred to as Olympic Boycott Games) was an event held at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia in 1980 by 29 of the boycotting countries of the American-led boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics as an alternative to the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow. Participating nations included the United States, Canada, the People's Republic of China, Egypt, Thailand, West Germany, Sudan and Kenya. It began on July 16, shortly before the 1980 Summer Olympics opened on July 19. In some events, the times were better than those in Moscow, such as American Renaldo Nehemiah's time of 13.31 in the 110m hurdles ahead of East German gold medal winner Thomas Munkelt's time of 13.39. Earlier in the year, the United States had previously considered holding other games in Côte d'Ivoire, Italy, Japan, West Germany or China. A similar event was held in 1984 by boycotting countries of the 1984 Summer Olympics, called the Friendship Games.
