Description

After a steering committee was formed in 1986, the Dominica National Olympic Committee was founded in 1987 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in September 1993 at the IOC session in Monte Carlo. The country made its Olympic début in 1996 when five track & field athletes and one swimmer competed at the Atlanta Olympics. Dominica has since competed in all Olympic Games, represented by 16 athletes in track & field athletics (13), and swimming (3). In 2014 followed their first participation at the Olympic Winter Games with the cross-country skier Gary di Silvestri.

The best performance by a Dominican Olympian came in 1996 when Jerome Romain qualified for the final round of the triple jump, although he failed to make a fair jump in the final.
