National Olympic Committee
Norwegian Olympic Committee and Confederation of Sports

Norway first participated at the Olympic Games in 1900, and has sent athletes to compete in every Games since then, except for the sparsely attended 1904 Games and the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow when they participated in the American-led boycott.

Norway has hosted the Games on two occasions:

Norwegian athletes have won a total of 144 medals at the Summer Olympic Games, with sailing and shooting as the top medal-producing sports. At the Winter Olympic Games, Norway has won 303 medals (107 gold) — more than any other nation — with cross-country skiing and speed skating as the top sports. Norway is one of only three nations (along with Austria and Liechtenstein) to have won more medals at the Winter Games than at the Summer Games.

The National Olympic Committee for Norway was created and recognized in 1900.

*Total medal counts include three medals – two silver and one bronze – awarded in the figure skating events at the 1920 Summer Olympics. These medals are included in the summer games medal totals and the winter sport medal totals. This is why the totals for summer and winter games do not match the totals for summer and winter sports.
