Samoa made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1984 as Western Samoa and has competed ever since. The nation changed its name to Samoa after the 1996 Olympics. Samoa sends a small delegation with around 10 athletes to each Olympics. The athletes typically compete in athletics, boxing and weightlifting. Samoa won its first and only Olympic medal in 2008 where weightlifter Ele Opeloge won silver in the women’s +75kg.
