The Republic of China (ROC) had always competed in the Olympic Games under that name except for the first time under the name of Chinese Taipei at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, California. The change in name was a result of the Nagoya Resolution, adopted by the International Olympic Committee in 1979 after the objections raised in the 1970s by the People's Republic of China (PRC) over the political status of Taiwan. The IOC restrictions over the ROC name led to the ROC boycott of the Summer Games of 1976 and 1980; the PRC had always boycotted the Olympic Games. The 1984 Summer Games Chinese Taipei team included 31 men and 7 women, taking part in 40 events in 12 sports.[1] In weightlifting, athletes from the Chinese Taipei and People's Republic of China won medals.
