Hong Kong

History

Hong Kong made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1952 and has competed ever since, with the exception of 1980 where it participated in the United States led boycott. Initially Hong Kong competed as a British colony until 1996, where after being transferred back to China it became a special administrative region of China and continued to participate at the Olympics separately, officially known as Hong Kong, China. Typically they send a medium size delegation of a few dozen athletes and compete in such sports as badminton, cycling, fencing, sailing, shooting, swimming and table tennis. Hong Kong won its first medal in 1996 where sailor Lee Lai Shan won gold in women’s Mistral. In total Hong Kong has won three medals with the other two coming in table tennis (2004) and cycling (2012).
