Description

South Sudan became independent in July 2011. The National Olympic Committee (NOC) was founded on 8 June 2015 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at the IOC Session in Kuala Lumpur on 2 August 2015. South Sudan was represented at the 2012 London Olympics, however, by marathoner Guor Marial, who competed as an Independent Olympic Athlete (IOA) since South Sudan was not yet an IOC Member. Prior to independence, several athletes from what is now South Sudan also represented Sudan at the Olympics.
