National Olympic Committee Kenya

Kenya first participated at the Olympic Games in 1956, and has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since then, except for the boycotted 1976 and 1980 Games. Kenya participated in the Winter Olympic Games in 1998, 2002 and 2006. However, their only competitor at these games, Philip Boit, failed to qualify for the 2010 events, and retired in 2011; this left Kenya's future participation for the Winter Olympics in doubt. Kenyan athletes have won 86 medals in total, all from boxing and athletic events. Of those, 56 medals come from the long-distance running events. In terms of total medals won, the two most recent Summer Olympics (2008 and 2012) have been Kenya's most successful, producing 25 medals between them.

The National Olympic Committee for Kenya is the National Olympic Committee Kenya, and was founded in 1955.
