Yemen has only competed at the Summer Olympic Games, sending athletes to every edition since its first participation in 1992. Before the Yemeni unification in 1990, Yemenite athletes had competed at the Games as early as 1984, representing North Yemen (1984 and 1988) or South Yemen (1988). Yemen has not yet won any Olympic medal.

The Yemen Olympic Committee was formed in 1971 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee in 1981.
