Luxembourg

History

Luxembourg made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1912 though some historians argue that the 1900 men’s marathon gold medalist Michel Theato was a Luxembourg citizen. With the exception of 1932 the nation has competed in all subsequent Olympics. Since 1964 the nation has sent a small delegation of around 10 athletes whom have competed in a variety of sports including archery, athletics, cycling, fencing, gymnastics, shooting and swimming. Ignoring the medal won in the marathon, Luxembourg’s first medal was won in 1920 by weightlifter Joseph Alzin. The other summer medalist is track and field athlete Josy Barthel whom won gold in the men’s 1500m in 1952.
