    Iran first participated at the Olympic Games in 1948, and has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since then, except for 1980 and 1984 due to boycotts. Iran has also participated in the Winter Olympic Games on several occasions since 1956.

    Freydoun Malkom, a fencer who competed in the épée event in the 1900 Summer Olympics, was the first Iranian Olympic competitor. Iranian athletes have won a total of 60 medals, all in wrestling, weightlifting, taekwondo, and athletics.

    Iran''s National Olympic Committee was founded in 1947.
