Description

Libya formed a National Olympic Committee (NOC) in 1962, and although it was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 17 October 1963 at the IOC session in Baden-Baden, Libya did not take part in the 1964 Olympic Games. Libya’s first appearance was in 1968. After a second appearance in 1980, the country has attended all Olympic Games since 1988. Libya has not competed at the Olympic Winter Games and has not won an Olympic medal. A seventh place in the 2004 men’s flyweight taekwondo event by Ezedin Tlish is the best Libyan performance at the Olympics to date.
