NOC-K was started in 1955 and recognized by the IOC in the same year.
Kenya made its debut at the Olympic Games in the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, Australia 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, 2006 and 2018. Kenyan athletes have won 103 medals in total, all from boxing and track and field events. In terms of total medals won, the most recent Summer Olympics (2008, 2012, and 2016) have been Kenya’s most successful, producing 42 medals between them.
The number of Kenyan women winning Olympic medals has risen dramatically, from their first in 1996 to more than half the Kenyan medals in 2016 (seven).
Kipchoge Keino, a four-time Olympic medalist, was the longest serving President of NOCK from 1999 – 2017.
The Current President is retired Olympian and Marathon World Record Holder, Dr. Paul Tergat.
