Previously, Azerbaijani athletes competed as part of the Soviet Union at the Olympics from 1952 to 1988, and after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Azerbaijan was part of the Unified Team in 1992.
The National Olympic Committee of the Azerbaijani Republic was created in 1992 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee in 1993.
In 2016, Azerbaijan became one of only two nations (the other being Great Britain, also between 2000 and 2016) ever to increase the number of medals achieved in five consecutive Games. Azerbaijan's success at the 2016 Games was driven by primarily by naturalized citizens; 12 out of the 16 medalists for Azerbaijan were born outside of the country (primarily immigrants from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Iran).
