Description

After the establishment of a National Olympic Committee (NOC) on 28 December 1946, Lebanon was awarded International Olympic Committee (IOC) recognition in 1948, and made its Olympic début that year. Since then Lebanon has competed at every Olympic Games with the exception of 1956 when they boycotted in protest against the Israeli occupation of the Sinai Peninsula. Lebanese alpine skiers have competed at nearly every Olympic Winter Games since 1948, only missing the Winter Olympics of 1994 and 1998. Through 2012, Lebanon has won four Olympic medals, two silver and two bronze. Three of these medals were won in wrestling.

In 1960 the Olympic Committee of Lebanon was awarded with the Count Alberto Bonacossa Trophy.
