Description

The National Olympic Committee of Tunisia was formed on 27 May 1957. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) rejected recognition on 20 November 1956 at the Melbourne session due to political reasons, but provisional recognition followed at the IOC Session in Sofia on 23 September 1957. Tunisia has competed at the Olympic Games since 1960, missing only the 1980 Olympic Games, and boycotting the 1976 Games, although a few of its athletes had already competed. It has never competed at the Olympic Winter Games. Tunisia has won 13 Olympic medals with 4 golds. Four of them (including one gold) were won by Mohamad Gammoudi, a distance runner, who won the 5,000 metres in 1968. The most gold medals have been won by swimmer Oussama Mellouli, who won golds in the 1,500 metres freestyle in 2008 and the 10 kilometres open water in 2012.
