Pakistan's first ever participation in the Winter Olympic Games, was at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics when Mr. Mohammad Abbas became Pakistan's first athlete to qualify in the Alpine Skiing (Giant Slalom) category.
Pakistani athletes have won a total of ten medals, eight from men's field hockey. Notably, their gold medal in 1960 ended India's run of six successive gold medals. In 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics, Pakistan's Syed Hadi Haider Naqui did pick up a Bronze Medal in the demonstration sport of Tae-Kwon-Do, but as the sport was not given full status the medal was not recognised in the official tally.
The National Olympic Committee for Pakistan was created in 1948. Rome 1960 has been the best Olympics for Pakistan so far, with Pakistan winning two Medals. A gold in field hockey and a bronze in wrestling.
