Description

Haiti initially formed a National Olympic Committee (NOC) in 1914, which was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1924. After World War II Haiti seems to have formed a new NOC that the IOC recognized in 1956. 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.

Haiti has won two medals in the Olympic Games through 2022, but it has been a while, as Sylvio Cator won a silver medal in the long jump in 1928, and their free rifle shooting team won a bronze medal in 1924.

Haiti first appeared in the Winter Olympic Games at Beijing 2022, with Alpine skier Richardson Viano competing in the giant slalom and finishing 34th in the s-alom event.
