Niger At The 2008 Summer Olympics
Niger sent five athletes, their second largest contingent ever (6 in 1988), equalling the most sports in which they have participated (3 in 2004). to compete at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. It was Niger's 10th Olympics; their only medalist has been Issaka Dabore, in boxing, at the 1972 games.
Famous quotes containing the word summer:
“Fish, flesh, or fowl, commend all summer long
Whatever is begotten, born, and dies.
Caught in that sensual music all neglect
Monuments of unaging intellect.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
