Description

The National Olympic Committee of Senegal was formed on 31 August 1961 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 17 October 1963 at the IOC Session in Baden-Baden. Senegal first competed at the 1964 Olympic Games and has competed at every Olympics since, one of the few African nations not to join the 1976 boycott. It has competed at the Olympic Winter Games in 1984, 1992, 1994, 2006 and 2010. Amadou Dia Bâ won the nation’s only medal to date, a silver in the 1988 400 metre hurdles in track & field athletics. Prior to Dia Bâ’s medal in 1988, it can be argued that Senegal had won a medal in 1960. In that year, Abdou Sèye won a bronze in the 200 metres while representing France. Seye was a Senegalese national, but the country was still a French territory, so he had to compete under the French flag. The first Senegalese national to compete in the Olympics was probably Samba Ciré who competed for France in the javelin throw in 1924.
