Olympic history (summary)

Winter Games

Senegal competed at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, from 13 to 29 August 2004. This was the nation's eleventh appearance at the Olympics.

The Senegalese National Olympic and Sports Committee (French: Comité National Olympique et Sportif Sénégalais) sent a total of sixteen athletes to the Games, six men and ten women, to take part in six different sports. For the second consecutive time in the nation's Olympic history, Senegal was represented by more female than male athletes. Five Senegalese athletes had previously competed in Sydney, including breaststroke swimmer Malick Fall, and hurdler Mame Tacko Diouf, who reprised her role to carry the nation's flag for the second consecutive time.[1] There was only a single competitor in judo, table tennis, and wrestling.

Senegal, however, failed to win its first Olympic medal since the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, where Amadou Dia Bâ won silver for the track hurdles.
