Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games
* As British Honduras

British Honduras (now Belize) competed in the Summer Olympic Games for the first time at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City, Mexico. Seven competitors, all men, took part in six events in four sports.[1]

Some speculated that the Tlatelolco massacre would discourage British Honduras's participation in the Games, but the British Honduran athletes persevered. They won no medals, however.
