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

This list features athletes like Olivia Nobs and Markus Eggler.

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