In the 1992 Barcelona Games, Kuwait received a bronze medal in the then-demonstration sport of taekwondo. 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. In 2016, Al Deehani won the Gold medal for men's double trap as an independent athlete.
The National Olympic Committee for Kuwait was formed in 1957 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee in 1966 and was suspended twice in the past 10 years. Due to the present suspension, Kuwait cannot compete as a sovereign state at the 2016 Summer Olympics. However, Kuwait participants compete as Independent Olympic Athletes under the Olympic Flag.
