Niger made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1964 and has competed ever since, with the exceptions of 1976 where it participated in the African boycott and 1980 where it participated in the United States led boycott. The nation sends a small delegation of fewer than 10 athletes to compete. So far the athletes have competed in athletics, boxing, judo, rowing, swimming and taekwondo.

Niger won its first medal in 1972 where boxer Issaka Daborg won bronze in the men’s light welterweight. Their second medal came in 2016 where taekwondo athlete Abdoul Razak Issoufou won silver in the men’s +80kg event.
