The National Olympic Committee for Croatia is the Croatian Olympic Committee, which was created in 1991 and recognized in 1993.

Croatian athletes have won forty-one medals at the Summer Olympic Games, including multiple gold medals by the men's handball team in 1996 and 2004, as well as discus-thrower Sandra Perković in 2012 and 2016. At the Winter Olympic Games, Janica Kostelić won six medals (four gold) between 2002 and 2006, her brother Ivica won four silver medals (in 2006, 2010 and 2014), and Jakov Fak won a bronze in 2010.
