Following the Dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Kyrgyzstan was recognized by the International Olympic Committee on 1 January 1993.[1] Kyrgyzstan has participated in every Winter Olympics since the 1994 Lillehammer Games, and every Summer Olympics since the 1996 Atlanta Games.[2] For the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, the Kyrgyzstani delegation consisted of two athletes, alpine skier Dmitry Trelevski and cross-country skier Olga Reshetkova.[3] Trelevski was chosen as the flag bearer for both the opening ceremony and the closing ceremony.[4][5]

Dmitry Trelevski was 26 years old at the time of the Vancouver Olympics.[6] On 23 February, he competed in the giant slalom, where he posted run times of 1 minute and 31 seconds and 1 minute and 36 seconds.[7][8] Results were determined by adding the two run times together, and his total time of 3 minutes and 8 seconds placed him in 76th position.
