Great Britain first participated at the Olympic Games in 1896. It is one of the few countries to have won medals at every single edition of the Summer Olympic Games, also hosting the competition three times.

Great Britain has won over 900 medals at the Summer Olympic Games and the Winter Olympic Games, with over 50 medals in Athletics, Cycling, Rowing, Sailing, and Boxing.

The British Olympic Association was originally created in 1865, but recreated in its current form in 1905, the year in which it was also recognized by the International Olympic Committee.
