Montenegro competed as an independent nation for the first time at the Olympic Games at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, People's Republic of China. Montenegro was the youngest nation to participate in the 2008 Summer Olympics.[2] Athletes from Montenegro participated in three difference events. In individual events, the new nation had representatives in boxing, and shooting sports. Boxer Milorad Gajović represented his country in the heavyweight division, while Nikola Šaranović competed in 10 m Air Pistol and 50 m Pistol precision shooting events. In team competition, Montenegro competed in water polo. The Montenegro national water polo team won the 2007 European Water Polo Olympic Qualification Tournament to qualify for the Olympic games.[3]

Montenegro failed to win any medals, but did advance to the bronze medal match in Men's water polo. They lost to Serbia, 6-4.

History

Montenegro created its National Olympic Committee in 2006,[4] and gained International Olympic Committee recognition in 2007 during the IOC's meetings in Guatemala City. Previously, Montenegrin athletes competed as part of the Serbia and Montenegro team in 2004, and as part of Yugoslavia teams before that. Montenegro was also part of the Yugoslavian team in 1992 Summer Olympics that participated as the Independent Olympic Participants. Following Montenegro's referendum to become a free nation, Serbia was declared the successor state and inherited the joint nation's National Olympic Committee. The admittance of Montenegro, along with Tuvalu and the Marshall Islands brings the total number of nations competing in the 2008 Olympics to 204.[2][5]
