Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

The Andorra Olympic Committee (Catalan: Comitè Olímpic Andorrà) sent a total of five athletes, two men and three women, to the Games, competing in athletics, judo, shooting, and swimming. Four of them made their maiden appearance at these Games, with swimmer Mónica Ramírez being the only returning athlete from London 2012. Half-middleweight judoka Laura Sallés was the nation's flag bearer in the opening ceremony.[1] Andorra, however, has yet to win its first ever Olympic medal.
