Description

Bolivia formed a National Olympic Committee on 17 June 1932, which was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1936. In the same year Bolivia had a single swimmer at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, but the nation did not compete at the Olympics again until 1964. It has since competed continuously with the exception of Moscow in 1980. Bolivia has also competed six times at the Olympic Winter Games, sending skiers in 1956, 1980, 1984, 1988, 1992, and 2018. At the Winter Games Bolivian athletes have competed only in Alpine and cross-country skiing, while in the Summer Games they have competed in 14 different sports. Despite their appearance at 14 Olympic Summer Games, Bolivia has been represented by only 93 Olympic athletes, with their largest contingent being 13 at Barcelona in 1992. Bolivian athletes have not yet won an Olympic medal, but at the 2010 Youth Olympic Games, the Bolivian Under-15 football team won the gold medal in that inaugural competition.
