The nation has never participated in any Winter Olympic Games; however, they have qualified to compete in the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Bahamian athletes have won a total of ten medals, all in athletics and sailing.

The National Olympic Committee for Bahamas is the Bahamas Olympic Association, and was created in 1952.
