Description

Liechtenstein made its first Olympic appearances at the Games of 1936, both Winter and Summer. Since that time it has failed to appear only at the 1952 Oslo Winter Olympics, the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, and the 1980 Moscow Olympics. Liechtenstein is the only country having won medals at the Olympic Winter Games (nine, two gold) but not at the Games of the Olympiad. This is because of the country’s outstanding alpine skiers, and especially two families, the Frommelts and the Wenzels, who together won eight of Liechtstein’s Olympic medals.
