Description

Malta formed a National Olympic Committee (NOC) on 7 June 1928 and first competed at the Olympic Games in the same year. It has participated rather sporadically since then, missing the Olympic Games of 1932, 1952, 1956, 1964, and 1976. In 2014 they competed for the first time at the Olympic Winter Games wuth the Alpine skier Elise Pellegrin, and she competed again in 2018.

Malta’s top Olympic moment occurred in 1928 when its water polo team won one match, defeating Luxembourg 3-1, before losing to France in the second round. This placed it equal fifth, of a starting field of 14 teams. Also remarkable is William Chetcuti who finished eighth in double trap shooting in 2008 and also finished ninth in this event in both 2004 and 2012.
