Description

Mali formed a National Olympic Committee (NOC) on 25 October 1962, which was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 17 October 1963 at the IOC session in Baden-Baden. In 1964 Mali made its first appearance at the Olympics and has since missed only the 1976 Olympics, joining the African boycott. It has never won a medal and it has not competed at the Olympic Winter Games. Its best Olympic performance came in 2004 when the Malian men’s football team reached the quarter-finals, in which it was eliminated by Italy and in 2012 when Daba Modibo Keita lost the bronze medal fight in the men’s heavyweight taekwondo to finish equal fifth.
