Andorra at the Olympics

Andorra is one of the smallest countries in Europe. They made their Olympic debut in the 1976 Winter Olympics and as with most countries of its size; they are yet to win an Olympic medal. They sent a three-athlete delegation to the 1976 Summer Olympics and five Alpine skiers (Antoine Crespo, Antoni Naudi, Carlos Font, Esteve Tomas and Xavier Areny) to the 1976 Winter Games held in Innsbruck, Austria.

Even though they have not been very successful in the Olympics, Andorra has never missed any of the Olympic Games since 1976. They have sent a delegation to every Summer and Winter Olympics and that shows their determination to take home one of those Olympic medals.
