The 2018 Winter Olympics has started in earnest and eight African countries are competing at the games ongoing in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Africa first entered the competition in 1984 at Sarajevo with Senegal alpine skier Lamine Gueye. The previous Winter Olympic Games in Sochi in 2014 featured only two African athletes from Togo and Zimbabwe.
