Description:
Ghana first participated at the Olympic Games in 1952, when it was known by the colonial name of Gold Coast. The nation has sent athletes to compete in most Summer Olympic Games since then, missing the 1956 Games, boycotting the 1976 Games in protest of the participation of New Zealand (who still had sporting links with apartheid South Africa), and joining the American-led boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics. Ghana has never participated at the Winter Olympic Games although they will participate in 2010.

Ghanaian athletes have won a total of four Olympics medals, three in boxing, and a bronze medal by the under-23 Ghana national football team in 1992.

The National Olympic Committee for Ghana was created in 1952 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee that same year.
