Argentina first participated at the Olympic Games in 1900.

Argentina was one of the twelve countries -the only from Ibero-America- who founded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1894, being represented by the first Executive Council José Benjamin Zubiaur, who served in that role until 1907.

The National Olympic Committee for Argentina was created and recognized in 1923.
