Nepal is yet to win an Olympic medal.
Taekwondo athlete Bidham Lama took a bronze medal at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul but that was not counted as an official medal since taekwondo was an exhibition sport at the Games.
Meanwhile, 50 sprinters and coaches took part in a one-day workshop in the Olympic Building organised by the Athlete Society Track and Field in cooperation with the NOC.
