Turkmenistan made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1996, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union and has competed ever since. The nation sends a small delegation of around 10 athletes to compete at each Olympics. The athletes typically compete in athletics, boxing, judo, shooting, swimming and weightlifting. Turkmenistan has yet to win its first Olympic medal.
