Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games

Central African Republic competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's ninth appearance at the Olympics, excluding three games after its national debut in 1968.

Comité National Olympique et Sportif Centrafricain sent the nation's largest delegation in its Olympic history, after the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. 6 athletes, an equal share between men and women, were selected to the team, competing only in athletics, taekwondo, swimming, and wrestling (the last two sports marked its Olympic debut in London). Sprinter Berenger Aymard Bosse, who advanced past the first round for the first time in the men's event, became the only athlete to compete at his second Olympics. Taekwondo jin David Boui, on the other hand, was appointed by the committee to be the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony. Central African Republic, however, has yet to win its first Olympic medal.
