New Zealand

History

New Zealand made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1920 and has competed ever since. At the 1908 and 1912 Olympics New Zealand competed jointly with Australia and was known as Australasia. New Zealand sends one of the largest teams where over the last three Olympics almost 200 athletes competed across most of the sports on the Olympic program.

New Zealand has won at least one medal in most Olympics it has participated in with the exceptions being 1948 and 1980. In total the nation has won 117 medals across 13 sports. The most successful sports include athletics (24), rowing (24) and sailing (22). The most successful athlete is equestrian Mark Todd where he won six medals. Todd won medals in individual eventing; two gold (1984 & 1988) and one bronze (2000) medals and in team eventing; one silver (1992) and two bronze (1988, 2012) medals. In 2016 New Zealand won 18 medals, its best ever medal total.
