Lebanon at the Winter Olympics

Lebanon first took part at the Winter Olympic Games in St. Moritz, Switzerland in 1948 and has taken part at most Winter Olympics since then, except in two editions of the Games that were held in 1994 and 1998. 

Although the Western Asian nation has won four medals at the Summer Games in the Greco-Roman wrestling and weightlifting, the nation is still hoping for its first ever medal at the Winter Games.

A couple of Lebanese athletes (1 man and 1 woman) had competed in alpine skiing at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games in Russia, but two unfortunately bowed out in the preliminary rounds of their respective events.
