Republic of China (1932–48)

Chinese Taipei (Chinese: 中華臺北; pinyin: Zhōnghuá Táibĕi) competed at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, where it sent 80 competitors in a record 15 sports.[1] Since 1984, athletes from Taiwan have competed at the Olympics as "Chinese Taipei", not as the "Republic of China (ROC)", due to opposition from the People's Republic of China.[2]

According to the Taipei Times,

For the Beijing Olympics, Taiwan has asked the International Olympic Committee to guarantee that there will be no political interference and no discrimination against Taiwanese athletes. China has promised that it will treat Taiwanese players fairly and in line with the Olympic Charter.[3]

As in previous editions of the Summer Olympics, the flag of the Republic of China was not displayed. Instead, the Chinese Taipei Olympic flag was waved by fans, and displayed, if the team won a medal. Had athletes from Chinese Taipei won gold medals, the National Banner Song, not the National Anthem of the Republic of China, would have been played at the medal ceremony.[3]
