Description

The National Olympic Committee of Thailand was formed on 20 June 1948 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 15 May 1950 at the IOC session in København. Competing in the Olympics since 1952, Thailand has missed only the 1980 Moscow Olympics. It has competed in the Olympic Winter Games since 2002, missing 2010. Thai athletes have won 33 Olympic medals: 9 gold, 8 silver and 16 bronze. Although Thai boxing is not an Olympic sport, “normal” boxing has been a top sport for Thai Olympians, who have collected a total of 14 medals in the sport through 2016. In recent Games, female weightlifters from Thailand have won 13 medals (including 5 golds) and female taekwondo practitioners also won three medals. The most successful athlete has been the boxer Manus Boonjumnong who won gold in the light-welterweight class in 2004 and silver four years later in the same weight class in 2008.
