Description

The National Olympic Committee of Singapore was formed in 1947 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at the IOC session in London in 1948. Singapore has competed independently at 16 Olympic Games since 1948, missing only 1964 and 1980. In 1964, Singaporean athletes also competed at the Olympic Games, but under the banner of Malaysia after joining the federation with Malaya, North Borneo (Sabah), and Sarawak. On 5 May 1964 the NOCs of Malaya, Singapore, Sabah, and Sarawak formed the Olympic Council of Malaysia. Singapore left the Malaysian Federation in 1965 and its NOC was again recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as independent on 7 October of the same year at the IOC Session in Madrid. Singapore first competed at the Olympic Winter Games in 2018.

In 1960, Tan Howe Liang won Singapore’s first Olympic medal, a silver in lightweight weightlifting. The most successful athlete has been Feng Tian Wei who has won a silver and two bronze medals in table tennis. Through 2018, Singaporean athletes have won 5 Olympics medals, including one gold by Joseph Schooling in 2016 men’s 100 metre butterfly swimming.
