List of the greatest Olympic athletes from Belgium, with photos when available. These are the best Belgian Olympians of all time who have had the honor of representing their country at the prestigious Olympic games. Belgian athletes from every era all have their place in the Olympic history books, but which Belgian Olympian is the best of them all?

List is made up of a variety of items, including Justine Henin and Marc Wauters.

This list answers the questions, "Who is the best Belgian Olympian of all time?" and "Who are the greatest Olympians from Belgium?"
