Haiti At The 2012 Summer Olympics
Haiti competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's fifteenth appearance at the Olympics, since its national debut at the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris. Comité Olympique Haïtien selected a team of five athletes, 3 men and 2 women, to compete only in athletics and judo. Four Haitian athletes, however, were born in the United States. With hundreds of thousands of people rendered homeless by a devastating earthquake in 2010, Haiti struggled to produce world-class athletes, but those with the nation's links were still eager to represent their ancestors' homeland in numerous sporting events, including the Olympic games. 21-year-old judoka Linouse Desravine, however, was Haiti's lone homegrown athlete, who later became the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony. Before London, Haitian athletes had won one silver medal by Silvio Cator in 1928, and one bronze medal by five rifle shooters in 1924

1900 Summer Olympics
The 1900 Summer Olympics (French: Les Jeux olympiques d'été de 1900), today officially known as the Games of the II Olympiad, was an international multi-sport event that took place in Paris, France, in 1900. No opening or closing ceremonies were held; competitions began on May 14 and ended on October 28. The Games were held as part of the 1900 World's Fair. In total, 997 competitors took part in 19 different sports. This number relies on certain assumptions about which events were and were not "Olympic". Many athletes, among them some who won events, didn't know that they had competed in the Olympic Games. Women took part in the games for the first time, and sailor Hélène de Pourtalès became the first female Olympic champion
