Liechtenstein are the only nation to have won a winter Olympic medal without having won a medal of any colour at a summer Games.
In total they have nine medals from the winter Games. All of their medals have been won in alpine skiing, and six of them belong to a brother and sister pairing.
The 1980 Lake Placid Games were Liechtenstein's most successful. Hanni Wenzel won the country's first gold medal by taking out the women's giant slalom, and she also won gold in the slalom and silver in the downhill. Her brother Andreas claimed silver in the men's giant slalom.
Hanni had also previously won a bronze in the 1976 Innsbruck slalom event and Andreas went on to win a giant slalom bronze at the 1984 Sarajevo Games.
