Namibia

History

Namibia made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1992 and has competed ever since. The nation sends a small delegation with around 10 athletes competing, typically in athletics, boxing, cycling and shooting. Namibia has won four medals all from the same athlete, sprinter Frankie Fredericks. In 1992 he won two silver medals in the men’s 100m and 200m and in 1996 he was able to repeat those feats winning silver in the same two events.
