African Championships (2004 African Championships in Athletics) Brazzaville, Congo (Congo-Brazzaville) bgcolor "gold" align "center" 1st After the independence of Mali (History of Mali#Independence.2C 1960 - present) in 1960, Mr. Kouyaté entered the Malian Soccer Federation as first general secretary given his high organizational and management skills in soccer. He was one of the delegates of the Malian soccer team during the African Games of 1965 in Brazzaville, Congo (Republic of the Congo), in which the team obtained the silver medal. He was invited to the Soviet Union, the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, East Germany, and the People's Republic of China with the Mali soccer team in the mid 1960s.

Chad was linked in 1905 with three French colonies to the south—Oubangui-Chari, Middle Congo (History of the Republic of the Congo) (present-day Congo-Brazzaville (Republic of the Congo)), and Gabon (History of Gabon). But Chad did not receive separate colony status or a unified administrative policy until 1920. The four colonies were administered together as French Equatorial Africa under the direction of a governor general (Governor-General) stationed in Brazzaville. The governor general had broad administrative control over the federation, including external and internal security, economic and financial affairs, and all communications with the French minister of the colonies. Lieutenant governors, also appointed by the French government, were expected to implement in each colony the orders of the governor general. The central administration in Brazzaville tightly controlled the lieutenant governors despite reformist efforts toward decentralisation between 1910 and 1946. Chad's lieutenant governor had greater autonomy because of the distance from Brazzaville and because of France's much greater interest in the other three colonies. As for the number of troops deployed in the country, there were three battalions for a total of about 3.000 soldiers. 1973 Brazzaville, Congo (Congo-Brazzaville) 16 Optional caption Host city Brazzaville, Congo (Congo-Brazzaville) Nations participating The first '''All-Africa Games''' were played from July 18, 1965 to July 25, 1965 in Brazzaville, Congo (Congo-Brazzaville).
