Winter Games

Fiji, having made its Olympic début at the 1956 Summer Games, has competed at twelve Summer Games and three Winter Games. Its athletes have taken part in athletics, judo, shooting, swimming and weightlifting, but have never won a medal.[1]

As of August 2011, two athletes from Fiji have taken part in Olympic Games through reaching the required standards to qualify, rather than by receiving a wild card invitation. They are Makelesi Bulikiobo, who qualified for the women's 400 metre sprint at the 2008 Games in Beijing, and Leslie Copeland, who with a throw of 80.45 metres qualified for the men's javelin event at the 2012 Games in London.[2]

Fiji's Winter Olympians were Rusiate Rogoyawa in cross-country skiing (1988, 1994) and Laurence Thoms in alpine skiing (2002).
