In the 1992 Barcelona Games, Kuwait received a bronze medal in the then-demonstration sport of taekwondo.[1] Their first Olympic medal was a bronze for double trap shooting, won by Fehaid Al Deehani at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney. Their second was also a bronze won by Al Deehani in the men's trap at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

The National Olympic Committee for Kuwait was formed in 1957 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee in 1966.[2]
