Olympic history
Summer Games

Bangladesh has competed in seven Summer Olympic Games. They have never competed in the Winter Games.

No Bangladeshi competitor has ever qualified for the Olympics; the country sends representatives to the Games thanks to the wildcard process.[1] Bangladesh is the most populous country in the world never to have won an Olympic medal. [2]

Bangladesh Olympic Association head Wali Ullah has stated that Bangladesh's weak economy accounts for its poor results in sports.[1]
