Olympic history
Summer Games

Cuba first participated at the Olympic Games in 1900, and has sent athletes to compete in 19 of 27 Summer Olympic Games overall. Cuban athletes have won a total of 208 medals at the Summer Olympics.

Cuban athletes have never participated in the Winter Olympic Games. Cuba is the most successful Olympic team (by total medals won) among those nations who never won medals at Winter Olympics.

Cuba has yet to have hosted the Olympic Games. Cuba has won the fifth highest total number of medals (after Hungary, Romania, Poland, and Bulgaria) of nations that have never hosted the Games.

The National Olympic Committee for Cuba is the Comité Olímpico Cubano, and was created in 1926 and recognized in 1954.
