Description

The National Olympic Committee of Mozambique was formed in 1978 and provisional recognition was granted at a meeting of the IOC Executive Board in Nagoya in October 1979. After being fully recognized Mozambique made its Olympic début in 1980 and has competed at each of the subsequent Olympic Games. Mozambique has not yet competed at the Olympic Winter Games. Their only medal winner has been the female middle-distance running phenomenon, Maria Mutola, who won bronze in the women’s 800 metres in 1996, and succeeded to the gold medal in that event in 2000.
