Description

Cambodia made its first Olympic appearance at the Equestrian Olympic Games of 1956 in Stockholm, although it did not compete at the Melbourne Olympics that year. It again participated in 1964 and 1972. It has yet to win a medal. Officially known as Khmer Republic (1970-1975) and as Kampuchea (1975-1989), the country has retaken the name Cambodia. With the frequent changes in government, the status and even the existence of a National Olympic Committee (NOC) has often been in doubt, but the latest body was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1994, and Cambodia has competed in all Summer Olympics since 1996.

In 1964, two Cambodian boxers placed equal ninth, with Khiru Soeun in featherweight and Touch Nol in light-welterweight, both winning one match, but the top Cambodian Olympic performance was likely the 73rd place out of 95 in the 2008 men’s marathon by Hem Bunting.
