Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games
Winter Games

India competed at the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris, France; this was the third Olympics where India participated. The previous year, in 1923, the All India Olympic Games (that later became the National Games of India) were held at Delhi. A few sportsmen from these games were selected to represent India at the 1924 Paris Olympics: the Indian team thus included seven athletes and seven tennis players (including two women), with Harry Crowe Buck as manager. The team trained at the Madras (YMCA) College of Physical Education where Buck was founding principal.
