List of Olympic athletes born in Philadelphia, listed alphabetically with photos when available. These famous Olympians from Philadelphia have achieved some of the highest honors in sports history just by qualifying for the Olympics, as most athletes will never be chosen to represent their countries. These are the most prominent people from Philadelphia who have competed in the Olympics, although not all of them have taken home an Olympic medal. While these popular Philadelphia Olympians were born in Philadelphia, they didn't necessarily compete for their originating country. Examples include Kobe Bryant and Tara Lipinski.
