Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games

Afghanistan returned to the Olympic Games at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens from 13 to 29 August 2004.

Afghanistan was banned from Olympic competition in 1999, during Taliban rule, but was reinstated in 2002.[1][2] At the 2004 Games, female athletes (Friba Razayee and Robina Muqimyar) represented Afghanistan for the first time in the country's history.[3] In 2004, the Afghan athletes were attempting to improve upon Afghanistan's best finish, Mohammed Ebrahimi's fifth place in wrestling at the 1964 Summer Olympics.
