The Philippines first sent athletes to compete at the Olympic Games in 1924, making it the first country to compete and win a medal in Southeast Asia. The nation has competed at every Summer Olympic Games since then, except when they participated in the American-led boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics. The Philippines also decided against participating at the 1940 Summer Olympics before the Games was ultimately cancelled due to the outbreak of World War II.[1] Filipino athletes have also competed at the Winter Olympic Games on four different occasions since 1972.

The Philippines first participated at the Winter Olympic Games in 1972, when it sent two alpine skiers.[2] The country also participated in the first Summer Youth Olympic Games in 2010 in Singapore.

Filipino athletes have won a total of ten Olympic medals (as of 2016 Summer Olympics), with boxing as the top medal-producing sport. [3]

The National Olympic Committee of the Philippines is the Philippine Olympic Committee, founded in 1911 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee in 1929.
