Monaco is a regular participant at the Summer Olympic Games since 1920, but only joined the Winter Games late. One of the smallest countries in the world and land-locked within France, Monaco made its debut at the Winter Games in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia in 1984 and has sent athletes to compete at the Winter Games from then on.
Its most famous Olympian is also a member of their royal family, Prince Albert, who competed at five Winter Olympics in the bobsleigh. He competed in the bobsleigh four-man and two-man events under the name Albert Grimaldi. Prince Albert was also a flagbearer for Monaco three times: in Calgary (1988), Lillehammer (1994) and Nagano (1998).
The nation still has yet to secure its first medal at the Winter Games.
