Description

Tonga first competed at the 1984 Olympic Games, and has attended all subsequent editions. In 2014 they also competed for the first time in Olympic Winter Games with the luger Bruno Banani. Tonga’s one Olympic medal to date came in 1996 when boxer Paea Wolfgramm finished second in the super-heavyweight class. However, their best known athletes has likely been Pita Nikolas Taufatofua, who competed in taekwondo at Rio de Janeiro in 2016 and then returned as a cross-country skiier at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
