Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games

Côte d'Ivoire competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's thirteenth appearance at the Olympics, except the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow because of the United States boycott.

The Côte d'Ivoire National Olympic Committee (French: Comité National Olympique de Côte d'Ivoire) sent a total of 10 athletes to the Games, 4 men and 6 women, to compete in 6 sports. For the third time in its history, Côte d'Ivoire was represented by more female than male athletes at an Olympic event. Sprinter Ben Youssef Meité was the nation's first male flag bearer at the opening ceremony since 2000. Among the sports played by the athletes, Côte d'Ivoire also marked its Olympic debut in archery.

Côte d'Ivoire, however, failed to win a single Olympic medal in London. Sprinter and Olympic hopeful Murielle Ahouré qualified successfully for the final rounds in two of her events, but missed out of the nation's first medal since 1984, after finishing farther from the standings.

Archery[edit]

Côte d'Ivoire has qualified one archer.
