List of the greatest Olympic athletes from Iceland, with photos when available. These are the best Icelander Olympians of all time who have had the honor of representing their country at the prestigious Olympic games. Icelander athletes from every era all have their place in the Olympic history books, but which Icelander Olympian is the best of them all? You can decide who the greatest Olympic competitor from Iceland is by how many medals they took back to their country, but that isn't the only factor that comes into play when considering who the best really is.

List is made up of athletes like Sturla Ásgeirsson and Hreiðar Guðmundsson.

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

America, Russia and Great Britain have the most Olympic medals out of every country that has been represented in the Olympics, but it doesn't mean that Olympic competitors from other nations don't deserve accolades as well. Vote for your favorite Iceland Olympic athletes on this list, and downvote the ones that you don't think had a huge impact on Iceland.
