Bosnia and Herzegovina at the Olympics

Bosnia and Herzegovina sent athletes to the Summer Olympic Games under its own flag for the first time in 1992. Bosnian athletes competed under the Yugoslav flag (see Yugoslavia at the Olympics) until the breakup of that country. Along with Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina is the only European non-microstate that has never won an Olympic medal.
