Summer appearances

Bangladesh has competed in every Olympic Games since 1984, with Bangladesh competing as part of India prior to 1947 and Pakistan prior to 1972. The nation never won a medal in the Summer Olympics and has never competed in the Winter Olympic Games.

In 2016, Siddikur Rahman became the first Bangladeshi to qualify for the Olympic games in golf,[1] and Bangladesh sent seven athletes to compete, more than any other year. The country has sent other representatives to the Games thanks to the wildcard process.[2] Bangladesh, with an approximate population of 170 million, is the most populous country in the world never to have won an Olympic medal.[3]

Bangladesh Olympic Association head Wali Ullah has stated that Bangladesh's weak economy accounts for its poor results in sports.[2]
