Description

As a former member of the Soviet Union, Turkmenistani athletes competed from 1952-1988 on the former Soviet Union teams, and their athletes were present at Barcelona in 1992 as members of the Unified Team. During this time Turkmenistanis have won two medals. The shooter Marat Niyazov won silver in the small-bore rifle, three positions in 1960 and the swimmer Gennady Nikolayev was a member of the bronze medal winning 4×200 metres freestyle relay team at the 1956 Games. Turkmenistan first competed independently at the 1996 Olympic Games but it has not yet participated in the Olympic Winter Games. Turkmenistan has yet to win its first Olympic medal, a sixth place being the top result so far, achieved by Ümürbek Bazarbaýew in the 2012 featherweight weightlifting.
