Bahamas at the Olympics

 

Bahamas at the Olympics

The Bahamas first participated at the Olympic Games in 1952, and has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since then, except when they participated in the American-led boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics. The nation has never participated in any Winter Olympic Games; however, they have qualified to compete in the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Bahamian athletes have won a total of eleven medals, all in athletics and sailing.

The National Olympic Committee for Bahamas is the Bahamas Olympic Association, and was created in 1952.
