Belgium started competing at the Olympic Winter Games in Chamonix in 1924, and has sent a team to every edition of the Games except for 1960 and 1968. Belgium's first winter Olympic medal was a bronze in the four-man bobsleigh in 1924. Belgium's only winter Olympic gold medal was won by Pierre Baugniet and Micheline Lannoy in the pairs figure skating at the 1948 St Moritz Games. At the same Games, the four-man bobsleigh team secured silver.
Belgium's most recent medal at the Olympic Winter Games came in Nagano in 1998 when speed skater Bart Veldkamp claimed the bronze medal in the men's 5000m event.
