Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

Cuba competed at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, United States. 164 competitors, 111 men and 53 women, took part in 84 events in 15 sports.[1]

Because of its relations with the United States and the trade embargo due to Fidel Castro regime, Cuban athletes were allowed to travel to Atlanta following the permission of its local NOC.
