Brazil at the Winter Olympics

Brazil is a regular participant at the Summer Olympics since 1920, but the nation is a latecomer at the Winter Games. The largest nation in South America made its debut at the Winter Games in Albertville, France in 1992 and has participated in the event from then on.

The home of the majestic Amazon jungle is also a strong contender at the Summer Olympics, but unfortunately the nation is still waiting to bag its first medal at the Winter Games. The finest performance of the nation was by Isabel Clark Ribeiro who placed ninth in snowboarding at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

Including 2014, the nation has sent a total of 46 athletes to the Winter Games, including the 13 athletes (6 men and 7 women) that competed in alpine skiing, biathlon, bobsleigh, cross-country skiing, figure skating, freestyle skiing and snowboarding in the 2014 edition of the event.
