Description

At the end of 1967, an Andorran committee, which had been set up to form a National Olympic Committee (NOC), approached the International Olympic Committee (IOC) with a view to obtaining recognition in time to send a team of Alpine skiers to the 1968 Olympic Winter Games, in Grenoble. As the draft constitution submitted did not comply with the Olympic rules on many points, the application was rejected, and it was not until 1975 that the IOC approved a revised set of rules. This enabled Andorra to take part in the 1976 Olympic Winter Games in Innsbruck, time since which they have competed at every Olympics. However, they have never had more than eight competitors at any Olympics, which happened twice: in Barcelona 1992 and Atlanta 1996.

Andorra has not yet won a medal at the Olympics, their best finishes coming with Emili Pérez in the 1988 men’s cycling road race, and with Daniel García in the 2012 men’s judo half-lightweight class, both placing ninth.

A few Andorreans represented Spain at the Olympic Winter Games prior to 1968, but Andorra first competed at Innsbruck 1976, and they have appeared at every Olympic Winter Games since. Through 2022, Andorra has had 32 Winter Olympians (22 men and 10 women), with their largest Winter contingent coming at Lillehammer 1994 and Vancouver 2010, with six competitors on both occasions. Andorreans have competed in four disciplines at the Olympic Winter Games – Alpine skiing (26 athletes), biathlon (1), cross-country skiing (3), and snowboarding (2). Their best finish has been ninth place, by Joan Verdú in the 2022 men’s giant slalom.
