Description

The National Olympic Committee of the United Arab Emirates was formed on 19 December 1979 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1980. The United Arab Emirates has competed at all Olympic Games since 1984. It is no surprise that the United Arab Emirates, a desert nation, has never competed at the Olympic Winter Games. In 2004, Ahmed Al-Maktoum won a gold medal in double trap shooting, the first medal by an athlete from the UAE. Their second medal came in 2016 when Sergiu Toma won bronze in men’s half-middleweight judo.
