Olympic history
Summer Games

Indonesia first participated at the Olympic Games in 1952, and has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since then, except for 1964, due to controversy around the Games of the New Emerging Forces, and 1980, when they participated in the American-led boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics. Indonesia has never participated in the Winter Olympic Games.

The National Olympic Committee for Indonesia was created in 1946 and recognized in 1952.

Indonesian athletes have won a total of 27 medals, almost all in badminton and weightlifting. While the country's total of 6 gold medals is lower than Thailand's 7, Indonesia has won the highest number of medals among all Southeast Asian nations with the second highest being Thailand with 24.

Archers Lilies Handayani, Nurfitriyana Saiman & Kusuma Wardhani gained the republic's first ever podium finish, a silver medal, in the women's team event at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. However, Indonesia have won all their gold medals in badminton. Future married couple Susi Susanti and Alan Budikusuma won the nation's first 2 gold medals in the women's and men's singles events respectively at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. It marked the start of Indonesia's gold medal tradition in the next 5 Summer Games. Barcelona 1992 was also the only Games in which Indonesia won 2 gold medals. However in 2012 London Olympics Indonesia failed to garner any gold medal.

The last gold medalists were Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan in the men's doubles event of badminton at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Indonesia's last medal is weightlifting men's 69 kg silver medal won by Triyatno in 2012 London Olympics.
