Bosnian athletes included Kenyan-born marathon runner Lucija Kimani, and rifle shooter Nedžad Fazlija, who participated at his fifth Olympic games without winning an Olympic medal. Heavyweight judoka Amel Mekić became the nation's flag bearer for the second time at the opening ceremony. Bosnia and Herzegovina, however, has yet to win its first Olympic medal as an independent nation.
