Description

Luxembourg is usually considered to have first competed at the 1912 Olympic Games, the same year in which it formed its National Olympic Committee. However, in the 1980s French athletics historian Alain Bouillé discovered that Michel Théato, the winner of the 1900 marathon, was from Luxembourg, not France, as previously believed. Luxembourg has competed at a total of 21 celebrations of the Olympiad since 1912, missing only the 1932 Los Angeles Games. It has also sporadically competed at the Olympic Winter Games, attending in 1928, 1936, 1988, 1992, 1994, 1998 and 2006. Luxembourg has won five Olympic medals (two gold) in sporting events, including two medals won at the Winter Olympics, by native Austrian Marc Girardelli. Luxembourg has also won three Olympic medals in the now-defunct Art Contests. Illustrator Jean Jacoby is the only artist to have won two Olympic art titles, in 1924 and 1928.
