Description

The Nepalese National Olympic Committee was founded in 1962 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at the IOC session in Baden-Baden on 17 October 1963. Nepal first competed at the Olympic Games in 1964 and since then they have missed only the 1968 Olympics. This Himalayan country first competed at the Olympic Winter Games in 2002 at Salt Lake City, and has reappeared in 2006, 2010, and 2014. Nepal has yet to win an Olympic sports medal, but at least one Sherpa, Tejbir Bura was part of the British expedition that was awarded an Olympic gold medal in 1924 for their alpinism efforts. In 1988, Bidhan Lama also won third place in the finweight taekwondo demonstration sport, the best sporting performance by a Nepalese at the Olympic Games.
