Sudan formed a National Olympic Committee on 16 August 1956, which was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 25 May 1959 at the IOC session in Munich. Since making its Olympic début in 1960, Sudan has missed only the Olympic Games of 1964, 1976, and 1980. It has never competed at the Olympic Winter Games. The country won its first Olympic medal at the Beijing Olympics, when runner Ismail Ahmed Ismail placed second in the men’s 800 metres.
