Winter Olympics appearances (overview)

Guam was represented in the Olympic Games for the first time and also in the Olympic Winter Games (as of 2014, only time) at the 1988 Olympic Winter Games.[1] A single biathlete competed: Judd Bankert, a 39-year-old Michigan-born outdoors enthusiast who had moved to Guam in 1981.[1] He took a year off work to qualify for the biathlon, and his entry was accepted three days before the Opening Ceremony.[1]
