Mexico at the Winter Olympic Games

Mexico first participated at the 1928 Winter Olympic Games in St. Moritz, Switzerland and then did not compete again from 1932 to 1980. From 1984 they have participated in all Winter Games except 1998 and 2006.

The biggest contingent was in 1992 at the Albertville Winter Olympics when Mexico sent 20 athletes. In 2014 there was just one competitor from Mexico.

Mexico's team at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea in 2018 consists of four athletes — the biggest delegation it has had at the Winter Games since in 1992, although their links to Mexico is varied. Alpine Skier Sarah Schleper was born in the USA and has competed for the USA at four previous Winter Olympics, and is now competing for her Mexican husband's country of birth. Another Alpine skier Rodolfo Roberto Dickson was born in Mexico, though was adopted at age 3 to a Canadian family. Cross-country skier German Madrazo grew up in Mexico but moved to the USA. A triathlete, he only took up the sport in 2017 at the age of 42. Freestyle skier Robert Franco is competing for Mexico based on his Guadalajaran father.

Mexico has yet to capture its first medal at the Winter Games.
