Description

After gaining independence from France in 1956 a National Olympic Committee was established on 15 April 1959 which was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at the IOC session in Munich in May of the same year. Morocco first competed in the 1960 Olympic Games. It has since missed only the 1980 Games; Morocco also joined the 1976 African boycott, yet some of its athletes had already competed by then. Morocco has sent athletes to the Olympic Winter Games in 1968, 1984, 1988, 1992, 2010, and 2014. Through 2012, Moroccan athletes have won 22 Olympic medals, 19 in track & field athletics, and three in boxing. With two gold medals, middle distance runner Hicham El Guerrouj, who won both the 1500 m and the 5000 m at the Sydney Games, is the country’s top Olympian.
