Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games

Sudan sent a delegation to compete at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. Nine competitors, all from the Darfur region and northern Sudan, represented Sudan at the Beijing games.[1]

The athletes' transport, training and equipment costs were mostly met by the British embassy in Khartoum, and by British charities.[2]

Sudan obtained one medal at the Beijing Games, when Ismail Ahmed Ismail took silver in the men's 800 metres race in athletics.[3] This was Sudan's first medal at an Olympic Games.[4]
