For Eswatini, 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. It has since been renamed the Eswatini Olympic and Commonwealth Games Association (EOCGA). 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 on only the Games of Montreal 1976 and Moscow 1980. Eswatini has also competed once in the 1992 Winter Olympic Games in Albertville, France, and was represented by alpine skier Keith Fraser. Since 1972, the EOCGA has developed into a multifaceted sports organization pursuing its primary goal of promoting the Olympic Movement and Olympism throughout the Kingdom of Eswatini and leading Swazi Athletes to the Olympic Games every quadrennial. It is the EOCGA’s goal to blend sport with culture and education to promote Olympism, cultivate ethical and moral values, foster friendships 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.
