Olympic history
Summer Games

Qatar has competed in 7 Summer Olympic Games. They have never competed in the Winter Olympic Games. They have so far won 4 bronze medals.

Following the 2008 Summer Olympics, Qatar was, along with Saudi Arabia and Brunei, one of only three countries to never have sent a female athlete to the Olympic Games. The International Olympic Committee in 2010 announced it would "press" these countries to allow and facilitate women's participation, and shortly thereafter the Qatar Olympic Committee announced that it "hoped to send up to four female athletes in shooting and fencing" to the 2012 Summer Games in London.[1] [2] The country ultimately included four female athletes in its delegation.[3]

The Qatar Olympic Committee was formed in 1979 and recognized by the IOC in 1980.[4]
