Description:
Cyprus (CYP) has sent athletes to every Olympic Games held since 1980, although the country has never won an Olympic medal. They had a near miss at the 2008 Olympics when Antonis Nikolaidis lost the bronze medal shoot-off in men's skeet. The first modern Olympian from Cyprus was actually Anastasios Andreou in 1896, who competed under the Greek flag. At this time, Cyprus was a British colony.

Because the so called Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is not internationally recognized, it has no Olympic committee. Therefore, all Cypriot Olympians compete under the name and flag of the Republic of Cyprus.
