Pakistan first participated at the Olympic Games in 1948 in London, and has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since then, except when they participated in the American-led boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics in Soviet Union

Pakistan's first ever participation in the Winter Olympic Games was at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics when Mohammad Abbas became Pakistan's first athlete to qualify in the Alpine Skiing (Giant Slalom) category.

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 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.
