Mauritania (MTN) has sent athletes to every Summer Olympic Games held since 1984, although the country has never won an Olympic medal. No athletes from Mauritania have competed in any Winter Olympic Games.

The National Olympic Committee was formed in 1962 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee in 1979.[1] Mauritania's first ever female competitor was Fatou Dieng who competed in 2000 Sydney.
