Pakistani athletes have won a total of ten medals, eight of those from men's field hockey. In 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics, Pakistan's Syed Hadi Haider Naqvi did pick up a bronze medal in the demonstration sport of Tae-Kwon-Do, but as the sport was not given full status, the medal was not recognized in the official tally.
The National Olympic Committee for Pakistan was created in 1948. Rome 1960 has been the most successful Olympics for Pakistan so far, with Pakistan winning two medals: a gold medal in field hockey and a bronze medal in wrestling.
Pakistan has won two individual medals in the Olympics to date, both bronze medal medals: one in wrestling in Rome 1960 and one in boxing in Seoul 1988.
Pakistan has not won a single medal at the Olympic games since 1992 Barcelona. Beijing 2008 and London 2012 have the been the worst Olympics for Pakistan by far as the Men's Field Hockey team has had to play for the 7th and 8th position match at the two Olympics. In all of the five Games to date, Pakistan was the most populated country that did not win at least one medal.
Pakistan, in a situation similar to India, is remarkable among nations for having very few Olympic medals in spite of being one of the most populated countries in the world, with a median age of around 26. Numerous explanations have been offered for this dearth, including poverty, malnutrition, lack of government funding, lack of citizen interest, the prominence of cricket (a non-Olympic sport), and other cultural factors. Pakistan has not won a single Olympic medal since the 1992 games, and in each of the games from 1996 to present, Pakistan was the most populated country (6th in the world) that did not win at lest one medal.
