Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

The Ivory Coast National Olympic Committee (French: Comité National Olympique de Côte d'Ivoire) sent a total of 10 athletes to the Games, 4 men and 6 women, to compete in 6 sports. For the third time in its history, Ivory Coast was represented by more female than male athletes at an Olympic event. Sprinter Ben Youssef Meité was the nation's first male flag bearer at the opening ceremony since 2000. Among the sports played by the athletes, Ivory Coast also marked its Olympic debut in archery.

Ivory Coast, however, failed to win a single Olympic medal in London. Sprinter and Olympic hopeful Murielle Ahouré qualified successfully for the final rounds in two of her events, but missed out of the nation's first medal since 1984, after finishing farther from the standings.
