A country must have formed a National Olympic Committee (NOC) and had that Committee approved by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) before they are allowed to send athletes to an Olympic Games. An NOC is in charge of developing and selecting athletes to compete for the country at the Olympics as well as training coaches and administrators in Olympic rules and regulations. Currently, Gibraltar has applied to the IOC for recognition of its NOC but has not yet been approved. When approval comes, Gibraltar will be allowed to send athletes to compete in the Olympics under the flag of Gibraltar. There has been at least one Gibraltar born athlete to compete in the Olympics. Peter Dignan, born in the city of Gibraltar, competed for New Zealand in men's coxed eights rowing at the 1976 Summer Games in Montreal and won a bronze medal.
