Turkey at the Winter Olympics

Since joining the Winter Olympic Games in 1936, Turkey has missed just three editions of the Winter Games (1952, 1972 and 1980).

The nation hasn’t won any medal yet at the Winter Games.

In the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games, Turkey sent six athletes (3 men and 3 women) that competed in alpine skiing, cross-country skiing and figure skating. Unfortunately all of the nation’s competitors failed to progress past the first round.
