Description

Athletes from what later became part of Czechoslovakia first competed at the 1900 Olympics, representing Bohemia. After World War I the Czechoslovak Republic (ČSR) was proclaimed in 1918 and Jiří Guth-Jarkovský acted quickley and formed the National Olympic Committee on 13 June 1919. In 1920, Czechoslovakia sent its first true Olympic team to Antwerp. From 1920-1992 the only Olympic Games not attended by Czechoslovakia, including the Olympic Winter Games, was the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. Czechoslovakia excelled in many different sports at the Olympics. The country’s most noteworthy athletes were distance runner Emil Zátopek and female gymnast Věra Čáslavská. Czechoslovakia, also known as Czechoslovak Republic (ČSR) between 1918-1938 and 1945-1960 and Czechoslovak Socialist Republic (ČSSR) from 1960 to 1990, competed as Czech and Slovak Federative Republic (ČSFR) at the 1992 Games, and split peacefully into the Czech Republic and Slovakia on 1 January 1993. The Czechoslovak Olympic Committee officially finished its activities on 27 March 1993.
