Description

Haiti formed a National Olympic Committee (NOC) in 1956 which was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in the same year. Haiti has a curious, intermittent Olympic history. A fencer named Léon Thiércelin represented it at the 1900 Olympics in Paris, as did a rugby-playing doctor who lived in Paris, Constantin Henriquez. Its next appearances were in 1924, 1928, and 1932, followed by a long gap before its return to the Olympic fold in 1960. Haiti did not attend the 1964 or 1968 Olympics. Despite having appeared in five Olympics through 1960, it had a total Olympic representation of only 12 men (including one artist) to that date. Haiti has since appeared at each Olympics since 1972, except for 1980. It has not yet competed in the Olympic Winter Games. Haiti has won two medals in the Olympic Games through 2012, but it has been awhile, as they won a silver medal in the long jump by Silvio Cator in 1928, and a bronze medal in team free rifle shooting in 1924.
