Winter Olympics appearances (overview)

Honduras competed in the Winter Olympic Games for the first time (and as of 2010, the only time) at the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France.

Cross-country skier Jenny Palacios-Stillo was Honduras' only athlete in Albertville, competing in three events: the 15 km classical, the 5 km classical pursuit and the 10 km free pursuit. Palacios placed last (50th, 62nd and 58th, respectively, all by wide margins) among the competitors who finished the three events; however, since she did finish all three, Jenny placed ahead of skiers who did not, and thus avoided coming in dead last. “It is the first time that a skier of Honduras takes part in the Olympics," Palacios said afterwards. "Me, I finished the race whereas there are girls who have more experience than me which did not pass the finishing line.” [1]
