Olympic history
Summer Games

Mauritius first participated at the Olympic Games in 1984, and has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since then. The nation has never participated in the Winter Olympic Games. Mauritius also supported the American-led boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics.

At the 2008 Beijing Games, Bruno Julie secured Mauritius' first ever Olympic medal by reaching the bantamweight boxing semifinals.

The National Olympic Committee for Mauritius was founded in 1971 by Ram Ruhee, who remained its Secretary General until 2008.[1] It was officially recognized by the International Olympic Committee in 1972.
