Olympic history
Summer Games

The first Summer Olympics that Bhutan participated in was the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. For each Summer Olympic Games from then until 2008, Bhutan was only represented by archers. Archery is the national sport of Bhutan.[1] The first non-archer to compete for Bhutan was Kunzang Choden in the 2012 Olympics. She competed in the women's 10m air-rifle event. [2] The 2012 Bhutan team contained no men.[3] Bhutan has never won an Olympic Medal. In spite of the fact that Bhutan is very mountainous, it has never competed in the Winter Games.

The Bhutan Olympic Committee was formed in 1983 and recognized by the IOC the same year.
