Mozambique

History

Mozambique made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1980 and has competed ever since. The nation sends a small delegation with typically fewer than 10 athletes competing at a single Olympics. So far the nation has competed in athletics, boxing, canoeing, judo and swimming. Mozambique has won two medals, both via middle-distance runner Maria Mutola. In 1996 Mutola won bronze in the women’s 800m and in 2000 she was able to upgrade that performance to a gold medal.
