Democratic Republic of the Congo

History

The Democratic Republic of the Congo made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1968 where it was known as Congo Kinshasa. They would not return to the Olympics until 1984 where they competed as Zaire. Since then they competed at all subsequent Olympics, changing their name to the current DR Congo at the 2000 games. The nation sends a very small delegation of athletes to the Olympics, no more than five have competed since 1996. They typically compete in athletics, boxing, judo and historically in cycling. DR Congo has yet to win its first Olympic medal.
