Suriname at the Olympics


Suriname at the Olympics

Suriname first participated at the Olympic Games in 1960, and has sent athletes to compete in most Summer Olympic Games since then. The nation missed the 1964 Games, and also participated in the American-led boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics. Suriname has never participated in the Winter Olympic Games.

Surinamese athletes have won a total of two medals, both by Anthony Nesty in swimming.

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