 Republic of China (1924-1972)

The People's Republic of China competed at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, United States. It was the first appearance at the Summer Games for PRC after its symbolic presence at the Summer Games in 1952 during which the dispute between ROC and PRC had started over the name of China and resulted in withdrawing all its athletes by ROC. Since then until these Games the communist PRC boycotted the games due to the Taiwan's presence as the Republic of China. In 1984, the Republic of China competed as Chinese Taipei and the PRC competed as China.

215 competitors, 132 men and 83 women, took part in 105 events in 19 sports.[1] The first gold medal to be awarded at the Los Angeles Olympics was also the first-ever medal to be won by an athlete from China when Xu Haifeng won the 50 m Pistol event. Li Ning won also 6 medals in gymnastics, 3 gold, 2 silver, and 1 bronze, earning him the nickname "Prince of Gymnasts" in China.[2]
