Austria has competed at most of the modern Olympic Games, missing only the 1920 Summer Olympics, from which it was barred because of its role in World War I.

Austrian athletes have won a total of 86 medals at the Summer Olympic Games, and another 201 at the Winter Olympic Games. Austria has won more medals in alpine skiing than any other nation.

The National Olympic Committee for Austria is the Österreichisches Olympisches Comité, and was created in 1908 and recognized in 1912.
