The country established their National Olympic Committee (Comité National Olympique et Sportif Guinéen) in 1965, and was internationally recognized the next year. In 1968, they participated in their very first Summer Olympics by sending fifteen athletes to Mexico City, Mexico.
Guinea missed the next two Olympiads and came back in 1980 and sent ten athletes to Moscow, USSR. From that point on, Guinea has never missed a Summer Games.
Since their debut in 1968, they are yet to win their first Olympic medal and they also have never been to the Winter Olympics like most of their African neighbors.
