Cote d’Ivoire

History

Cote d’Ivoire made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1964 and has competed ever since, with the exception of 1980 where it participated in the United States led boycott. The nation sends a small delegation with around 10 athletes competing at each Olympics. The athletes commonly participate in athletics, canoeing, judo, swimming and taekwondo.

Cote d’Ivoire won its first medal in 1984 where middle-distance runner Gabriel Tiacoh won silver in the men’s 400m. The nation won its other two medals at the 2016 Olympics where taekwondo athlete Ruth Gbagbi won bronze in women’s -67kg and taekwondo athlete Cheick Sallah Cisse won gold in men’s -80kg.
