Description

Prior to 1988, a few Aruban athletes competed with the Netherlands Antilles team, until nation gained autonomous status from the other islands on 1 January 1986. In anticipation of this development Aruba’s National Olympic Committee was formed on 21 August 1985. The recognition by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) followed on 17 October 1986 at the IOC session in Lausanne. Aruba competed in the Olympic Games for the first time in 1988 at Seoul and has competed in all Olympic Games since then, but has not yet competed at the Olympic Winter Games. Aruba has not yet won a medal. It has been represented by 32 athletes since 1988, the most being eight in 1988. In 2016, Jayme Mata won one match in half-middleweight judo to finish equal ninth of 34 in his class, the top finish to date from this small island nation.
