Mohamad Gammoudi is not only the first Tunisian Olympic medallist, he is also the country's first Olympic champion and has won four of the nation's seven Olympic medals through 2010. A distance runner, Gammoudi ran the 5 and 10 km at the 1964, and 1968 and 1972 Olympics. He won the 1968 5k, was runner-up in the 1964 10 km and the 1972 5,000 m, while earning a bronze medal in the 1968 10,000 m. Gammoudi also won the 1968 International Cross-Country meet, and won three military world titles in that discipline. At the 1963 and 1967 Mediterranean Games, he doubled in the 5 and 10 km on the track. He also won a slew of Maghreb Championships (11) and Tunisian Championships (18) in cross country running and distances between 1,500 m and 10,000 m. He trained in the military and, following his retirement from active competition, was promoted to the rank of officer and later served as a technical consultant and talent scout for the national Tunisian Athletics Union.
