Summer appearances

Cuban athletes have never participated in the Winter Olympic Games. Cuba is the most successful Olympic team (by total medals won) among those nations who never even participated at Winter Olympics.

Cuba has won the third position of American countries in gold medals (trailing only the United States and Canada), and has won more medals than any nation in South America. Cuba has yet to have hosted the Olympic Games. Cuba has won the fourth highest total number of medals (after Hungary, Romania, and Poland) of nations that have never hosted the Games.

The National Olympic Committee for Cuba is the Cuban Olympic Committee, and was created in 1926 and recognized in 1954.
