Eritrea made its debut at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney where it sent three athletes to compete in track and field events. At the 2004 Games in Athens, Zersenay Tadese won Eritrea's first ever medal when he finished third in the men's 10000 meters. As of 2014, Eritrea has not competed in any Winter Olympic Games.

The Eritrean National Olympic Committee was formed in 1996 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee in 1999.[1]
