Since 1896, the first modern Olympics, no South American country has been the site of either the summer or winter Olympic games. The closest country to South America to have held the games is Mexico, site of the 1968 summer Olympics.

There has never been an Olympics in a South American country as of yet. The first South American country to host the event will be Brazil in 2016.
