Olympic history
Summer Games

Nicaragua first participated at the Olympic Games in 1968, and has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since then, except when they boycotted the 1988 Games in support of North Korea. The nation has never participated in the Winter Olympic Games.

To date, no athlete from Nicaragua has ever won an Olympic medal, although the baseball team finished in fourth place at the 1996 Summer Olympics.

The National Olympic Committee for Nicaragua was created in 1959 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee that same year.
