Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

Guinea sent a delegation of five athletes compete at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China, which included Mariama Dalanda Barry in taekwondo,[1] Fatmata Fofanah (African champion in the women's 100 m hurdles), Djene Barry and Mamadou Cisse in swimming, and Nabie Foday Fofanah in athletics (who competed in the 200 m and 100 m sprint in the 2004 Olympics).[2][3] Thanks to the use of Simplified Chinese stroke count, it was first after Greece in the parade of nations as it takes only two strokes to write the first character—Guinea-Bissau followed directly behind.
