General Interest

At the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Malaysia won five medals, four silver and one bronze, the most the NOC has won at any Games. The bronze, won by track cyclist Azizul Hasni Awang was the NOC's first medal in a sport other than badminton or diving.

Malaysia, then known as Malaya, competed at an Olympic Games for the first time in 1956 in Melbourne. The name Malaysia was used from Tokyo 1964 onwards. At the 1956 Games, athletes competed in five sports with the majority playing in the men's hockey team that finished ninth overall.

It was not until 1992 that Malaysia won its first Olympic medal, a bronze in the men's badminton doubles event. At the Barcelona 1992 Games, the team of brothers Jalani and Razif Sidek shared bronze with the People's Republic of China after going down to the Republic of Korea team in the semifinals. Another brother of the Sidek family, Rashid, took men's singles bronze four years later in Atlanta. Soon Kit Cheah and Yap Kim Hock won men's doubles silver at the same Games.

At the 2008 Games in Beijing, Lee Chong Wei won the NOC's fourth badminton medal, a silver in men's singles. He went on to repeat the feat in London, becoming Malaysia's first multiple-Olympic medallist. Lee then won his third successive singles silver medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

In London in 2012, Malaysia won its first non-badminton medal when Pandelela Rinong took bronze in the women's 10m platform diving event. Rinong went on to win a silver medal at Rio 2016, this time in the women's 10m platform synchro event with partner Cheong Jun Hoong.
