Kenya first participated at the Olympic Games in 1956, and has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since then, except for the boycotted 1976 and 1980 Games. Kenya participated in the Winter Olympic Games in 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2018. Kenyan athletes have won 103 medals in total, all from boxing and track and field events. In terms of total medals won, the most recent Summer Olympics (2008, 2012, and 2016) have been Kenya's most successful, producing 42 medals between them.

Increasingly, Kenya-born athletes are competing in the Olympics for other countries, most notably the USA and Bahrain. In the 2016 Olympics, there were ~20 such athletes, including multiple medal winners.
