Description

Mexican athletes first competed at the 1900 Olympic Games when three polo players played at Paris in a mixed North American team. Mexico did not compete again at the Olympics until 1924 but it has competed since without fail. Mexico sent five bobsled competitors to the 1928 Olympic Winter Games and in 1932 they entered another bobsled team but it did not compete. It’s other Winter Olympic appearances have come in 1984, 1988, 1992, 1994, 2002, 2010, 2014, and 2018. Through 2018 Mexico has won 68 Olympic medals, 13 of them gold, all at the Games of the Olympiad. Its most successful competitor has been equestrian rider Humberto Mariles, who won two golds and a bronze at the 1948 Olympics, although diver Joaquín Capilla has won four medals, with one gold.

Mexico also hosted the Games of the XIXth Olympiad at Mexico City (Ciudad de México) in 1968. In 1962 the Olympic Committee of Mexico was awarded with the Count Alberto Bonacossa Trophy.
