Laos made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1980. They missed the next Olympics due to their participation of the Soviet Union led boycott. Since 1988 they have participated at all subsequent Olympics. The nation sends a very small delegation where around five athletes compete at each Olympics. The athletes typically compete in athletics, swimming and historically in boxing. Laos has yet to win its first Olympics medal.
