Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

Four Omani athletes, two per gender, were selected to the team to compete only in athletics and shooting at the Games, matching the nation's roster size with London 2012.[2] Among them were sprinter Barakat Al-Harthi, the lone returning Olympian from the previous Games, and rifle shooter Hamed Said Al-Khatri, who led the Omani delegation as the oldest competitor (aged 31) and the nation's flag bearer in the opening ceremony.[1] Oman, however, has yet to win its first ever Olympic medal.
