    The people of Madagascar enjoy playing many sports, six of which form the core of the country’s school- and amateur team-based competitive system: football (soccer), boxing, athletics (track and field), judo, women’s basketball, and women’s tennis. Malagasy athletes have excelled in the last sport especially, with two sisters, Dally Randriantefy and Natacha Randriantefy, competing internationally in such events as the U.S. Open and the Olympic Games. Madagascar made its Olympic debut in 1964 at the Tokyo Games. The country has also sent national teams to the African Games, and Malagasy athletes have participated as members of pan-African teams at the World Cup in Athletics.
