Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

Mexico competed at the modern Olympic Games for the first time at the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris, France.

Medalists

Gold medals were not given at the 1900 Games. A silver medal was given for a first place, and a bronze medal was given for second. The International Olympic Committee has retroactively assigned gold, silver, and bronze medals to competitors who earned 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes, respectively, in order to bring early Olympics in line with current awards.

Bronze

Three Mexican athletes, Eustaquio de Escandón y Barrón, Manuel de Villavieja Escandón y Barrón and Pablo de Escandón y Barrón, were part of a mixed team with one American athlete that won bronze at the Polo competition.
