Description

Puerto Rico first competed at the 1948 Olympics in London and has not failed to compete at the Olympic Games since then, notably attending the 1980 Olympics despite being a commonwealth of the United States. Puerto Rico also competed at the Olympic Winter Games of 1984, 1988, 1992, 1994, and 1998. Puerto Rican athletes won their first six medals (one silver and five bronze) all in boxing. In 2012 they added one silver in wrestling and one bronze in track and field athletics. The most successful athletes are the silver medalists Luis Ortíz who won his medal in the 1984 lightweight boxing and Jaime Espinal who finished second in the 2012 light-heavyweight wrestling.

In 1983 the Olympic Committee of Puerto Rico was awarded with the Olympic Cup.
