The 1992 Olympic games in Barcelona saw the first appearance of badminton. 4 events were held, with singles and doubles events for both men and women. Four medals were awarded in each event, including two bronzes. The next Olympics, Atlanta 1996, had 5 events with the addition of mixed doubles. There was also now a playoff between the two semifinal losers to determine the sole winner of the bronze medal. That format has been used for the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Summer Olympics.
