Nepal at the Winter Olympics

The tiny South Asian nation Nepal first appeared at the Winter Olympic Games in 2002, and every time since.

The nation which served as the home of the one-horned rhinoceros and Bengal tiger has also appeared in the Summer Olympics 12 times and captured a bronze medal at the 1988 Seoul Summer Olympic Games, when taekwondo was a demonstration sport.

Nepal sent four athletes at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games and was spearheaded by three-time Olympian Dachhiri Sherpa who competed at the 15-km classical race in the cross-country skiing.
