Mongolia’s 26 Olympic medals over 65 years

The Mongolian National Olympic Committee (MNOC) has unveiled a commemorative logo to mark 65 years since its formation.  The MNOC is due to celebrate its 65-year anniversary on 26 February.

Mongolia’s NOC was created in 1956 and the country has since sent teams to 13 Summer and 14 Winter Olympic Games.

The country has won a total of 26 Olympic medals in its history, all of which have come at the Summer Games. Mongolia’s athletes have won medals in judo, boxing, wrestling and shooting.

The nation’s best performance came at London 2012, where five Mongolian athletes won medals.

Mongolia sent a total of 43 athletes, who competed across nine sports, to the most recent Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. Two competitors represented Mongolia at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Mongolia currently has 11 qualified athletes for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, postponed to this year because of the coronavirus pandemic. Athletes have qualified in archery, boxing, shooting, swimming and wrestling to date.

Mongolia’s women’s 3×3 basketball team has also booked a place at Tokyo 2020, where the discipline is set to make its Olympic debut.

The MNOC is led by President Naidan Tuvshinbayar.
