Description

Bhutan established a National Olympic Committee (NOC) in February 1983. This was noted by the IOC Executive Board later that year, and provisional International Olympic Committee (IOC) recognition was granted in April 1984. Bhutan took part in the 1984 Olympics, since which time they have been represented in their national sport of archery at 10 Olympics (1984-2020).

The 2012 Games saw the first ever non-archery participant from Bhutan, Kunzang Choden, who competed in air rifle shooting. Through 2022, the NOC has also competed in judo and swimming, with one participant in each sport. Bhutan has not won an Olympic medal and has not yet competed at the Olympic Winter Games.

In 2004, Tashi Peljor (men) and Tshering Chhoden (women) both finished 32nd in the individual archery events, the best finish yet by a Bhutanese athlete
