Morocco

History

Morocco made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1960 and has competed ever since, with the exception of 1980 where it participated in the United States led boycott. The nation also participated in the African boycott, but only after some of its athletes had competed. Morocco sends a medium-sized delegation with 2-5 dozen athletes competing in a variety of sports, most commonly, athletics, boxing, football, judo, weightlifting and wrestling.

Morocco won its first medal in 1960 and has won at least one medal at each Olympics since 1984. In total the nation has won 23 medals across two sports; 19 in athletics and 4 in boxing. The most successful athlete is runner Hicham El Guerrouj whom won three medals. In 2000 El Guerrouj won silver in the men’s 1500m and in 2004 he won two gold medals in the 1500m and 5000m events. In 2016 Morocco won a single medal.
