Jamaica first participated at the Olympic Games in 1948, and has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since then. In 1960, Jamaican athletes competed as part of the West Indies Federation team. Jamaica has also participated in the Winter Olympic Games since 1988, with the Jamaica national bobsleigh team achieving some fame.

Jamaican athletes have won a total of 78 medals, with all but one medal won in athletics, and all but three of those in the individual and relay sprint events.

The National Olympic Committee for Jamaica is the Jamaica Olympic Association, and was founded in 1936.
