Description

In 1963, Malaya, North Borneo (Sabah), Sarawak and Singapore joined to form the Federation of Malaysia. On 5 May 1964 the NOCs of Malaya, Singapore, Sabah (formerly North Borneo), and Sarawak formed the Olympic Council of Malaysia. Three of these states had already competed at the Olympics previously, but they would march under one banner at the 1964 Tokyo Games. Singapore separated from Malaysia in 1965, and since then Singapore has competed on its own. Malaysia has since competed at all Games of the Olympiad except in 1980. It won its first Olympic medal, a bronze by Alan Sidek Mohamed and Ajib Sidek Mohamed in men’s badminton double, its national sport, in 1992. Malaysia has since won 7 more Olympic medals in badminton, 6 silvers and 1 bronze, as well as a silver and bronze in diving and one bronze in track cycling.
