Togo’s medal drought at the Olympiad ended at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games when Benjamin Boukpeti took the bronze medal in the K1-kayak slalom event in canoeing.

In the just recently concluded Rio de Janeiro Games the nation sent five athletes to compete in three sports namely rowing, swimming and track and field.
