Description

El Salvador’s National Olympic Committee was formed on 6 April 1949, but it was not recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) until 1962. Six years then passed before El Salvador competed at the Olympic Games in 1968, since when it has been absent only from the Olympics of 1976 and 1980. It has won no Olympic medals to date and has not yet competed at the Olympic Winter Games. Their best Olympic performance was a fifth-place finish by Maureen Kaila in the 1996 women’s points race cycling.
