The first black African skier to compete in the Winter Olympics was Senegal's Lamine Guèye, who made his debut at Sarajevo 1984. Guèye, who had founded the Senegalese Ski Federation in 1979, went on to compete at Albertville 1992 and Lillehammer 1994. Guèye has subsequently become a prominent figure in drawing attention to what he considers to be discriminatory qualification rules for the Winter Olympics, and has written to the International Olympic Committee requesting that all countries be granted the right to participate in the Winter Games, as was the case up to 1992.
