Description

Togo was known as French Togoland before gaining independent from France on 27 April 1960. The National Olympic Committee was founded on 16 February 1963 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 7 October 1965 during the IOC session in Madrid. Togo débuted at the 1972 Olympic Games. It then missed the 1976 and 1980 editions because of boycotts, but has since attended all Games. The West African nation won its first Olympic medal in 2008, when Benjamin Boukpeti won a surprise bronze medal in K-1 kayak slalom canoeing event. In 2014 the cross-country skier Mathilde Amivi Petitjean became the first ever Winter Games competitor for Togo.
