Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

Haiti competed at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Haiti sent ten track and field athletes and three boxers to the games. As the athletes were amateurs, picked by President Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier out of his personal friends, they had remarkedly poor times,[1] with Dieudonné LaMothe earning the worst results ever at the 5000 metres.[2]
