Luxembourg at the Winter Olympics

Luxembourg first made its appearance at the Winter Olympic Games in St. Moritz, Switzerland in 1928. After joining the 1936 Winter Olympic Games in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, the small nation was in hiatus for 50 years.

Winter sports are not popular in the nation. The nation is still waiting for its first gold medal at the Winter Games although it already won two silver medals in alpine skiing.

In 1988, Luxembourg finally made its presence felt at the Winter Games when the naturalization of Marc Girardelli burst into scene. The Austrian-born alpine racer captured two medals in the Giant Slalom and Super G events, which were Luxembourg's first two medals at the Winter Games. The 2-medal haul of the nation was good for 16th place finish in the medal board.

Years participated: 1928, 1936, 1988, 1992, 1994, 1998, 2006, 2014
