San Marino at the Olympics is a history of 21 games in 16 countries and 80+ athletes.[1] Since 1960, San Marino has contributed to the growth of the "Olympic Movement".[2]

The International Olympic Committee's official abbreviation for San Marino was SMA.[3] It is now SMR.[4]

History

A team from San Marino was first at the 1960 Summer Olympics. They have been in 12 Summer Olympics and 7 Winter Olympics. The country has never won a medal.[5]

Among its most successful athletes are Francesco Amici and Emanuela Felici. Both competed in shooting at the 2004 Summer Olympics and "missed out on places in the finals by the narrowest of margins".[6]
