Description

Many Uzbek athletes competed from 1952 to 1988 for the Soviet Union, and Uzbek athletes were present at Barcelona and Albertville in 1992 as members of the Unified Team. During this time the most successful Uzbeks have been the volleyballer Vera Galushka-Duyunova (two gold in 1968 and 1972), the gymnasts Elvira Saadi (two gold in 1972 and 1976), Galina Shamray (one gold and one silver in 1952), and Sergey Diomidov (two silver and one bronze in 1964 and 1968) as well as the equestrian Yury Kovshov, who won one gold and one silver in 1980.

The National Olympic Committee was established on 21 January 1992 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in September 1993 at the IOC session in Monte Carlo. As an independent nation, Uzbekistan has competed at all Olympic Winter Games since 1994, and at all Olympic Games since 1996. Lina Cheryazova won a gold medal in 1994 freestyle skiing aerials, the only medal won by Uzbekistan to date at the Olympic Winter Games. In total Uzbekistan has won 21 Olympic medals, six of them gold. Four medals were won by super-heavyweight freestyle wrestler Artur Taymazov, who won three golds and a silver between 2000 and 2012.
