Description

Chile’s intial Olympic appearance came in 1912. Since that time, however, it has missed only the Olympic Games of 1932 and 1980. Chile first competed at the Olympic Winter Games of 1948 and has competed at most subsequent Winter Olympics, missing those of 1972 and 1980. Chile formed its National Olympic Committee in 1934 and was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in the same year. Chilean athletes have won 13 Olympic medals, two gold (both in 2004), seven silver and four bronze. Tennis player Fernando González has won three Olympic medals, one of each color, the most by any Chilean Olympian. In 2004, Chile won gold in men’s singles and doubles tennis, with González partnering Nicolás Massú in doubles, with Massú also winning the singles.
