The Olympic Committee of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian Latin: Olimpijski komitet Bosne i Hercegovine; Serbian Cyrillic: Олимпијски комитет Босне и Херцеговине) is the non-profit organization representing Bosnia and Herzegovina athletes in the International Olympic Committee. The committee organizes Bosnia's representatives at the Summer and Winter Olympic Games.

Members of the committee are 30 sports federations, which elect the Executive Council composed of the president and twelve members.

History[edit]

The Olympic Committee of Bosnia and Herzegovina was founded on June 4, 1992. It grew out of the ZOI '84 organization, organizers of the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo. The committee maintains the Museum of the XIV Winter Olympiad. The first president of the committee was Stjepan Kljuić, with Izudin Filipović being the first secretary general. It became a full IOC and European Olympic Committee member in 1993.

Shortly after its foundation, the committee drafted the first athletes to participate under the Bosnian flag in the Olympic games for the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona.
