The Korean Sport & Olympic Committee (Korean: 대한체육회, Abbr.: KOC) is the National Olympic Committee of Republic of Korea (competing as Korea) for the Olympic Games movement and inbound sports issue. It is a non-profit organization that selects players and teams to represent the nation, and raises funds to send them to Olympic events organized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

Korean Olympic Committee merged with the Korea Council of Sport for All since March 2016 and renamed as Korean Sport & Olympic Committee since late November 2016 but the emblem of the Committee and the name in Korean are remaining the same as precious.
