Olympic history Summer Games 1972 • 1976 • 1980 • 1984 • 1988 • 1992 • 1996 • 2000 • 2004 • 2008

Somalia first participated at the Olympic Games in 1972, and has sent athletes to compete in most Summer Olympic Games since then. The nation boycotted the 1976 Games along with most other African nations, and also joined the American-led boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics. Despite the ongoing Somali Civil War, the nation has been able to send small contingents to each Games since 1996.

As of 2008, no Somalian athlete has ever won an Olympic medal, although Abdi Bile finished sixth in the final of the 1500 metres at the 1996 Summer Olympics.

The National Olympic Committee for Somalia was created in 1959 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee in 1972.
