Nicaragua at the Olympics

Nicaragua first participated at the Olympic Games in 1968, and has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since then, except the 1988 Games which they did not attend due to athletic and financial considerations.[1] The nation has never participated in the Winter Olympic Games.
