For Swaziland, it all started after post Independence (1968) when King Sobhuza II commissioned Ian Hodgkinson to set up the Commonwealth Games Association. In 1972 it was recognised as the Swaziland Olympic and Commonwealth Games Association (SOCGA) after becoming a member of the International Olympic Committee and was headed by David Sibandze. Two athletes, namely Richard Mabuza and Phil Sergeant, competed in the 1972 Munich Summer Olympic Games, and the country has attended nine Summer Olympic Games to date, missing out only on the Games of Montreal 1976 and Moscow 1980. Swaziland has also competed once in the Winter Olympic Games in 1992 in Albertville, France, and was represented by alpine skier Keith Fraser. Since 1972, SOCGA has developed into a multifaceted sports organization pursuing its primary goal of promoting the Olympic Movement and Olympism throughout the Kingdom of Swaziland and leading Swazi Athletes to Olympic Games every quadrennial. It is SOCGA’s belief that it will be able to blend sport with culture and education to promote Olympism, cultivate ethical and moral values, foster friendship and contribute to nation building. The role of the Olympic movement is to promote the development of those physical and moral values forming the basis of sport.
