Description

Cape Verde’s National Olympic Committee (NOC) was formed in 1989 and given official recognition by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at the IOC session in Monte Carlo in September 1993. Cape Verde made its Olympic début in 1996 and has competed in all Olympic Games since then, but it has not yet competed at the Olympic Winter Games. They have been represented by 13 athletes in their six Olympic appearances, competing in track & field athletics, boxing, judo, rhythmic gymnastics, and taekwondo. The top Olympic performance by a Cabo Verdean came in 2008 when Nelson Cruz placed 48th in the men’s marathon. In 2012 Adysângela Moniz finished equal ninth in the women’s heavyweight judo, but lost her only bout as did Davilson Morais in 2016, when he lost his only bout in the super-heavyweight boxing.
