France has competed in every modern Olympic Games, although its participation at the 1904 Games is questionable, with Albert Corey's appearance being credited by different sources to either the United States or France. However the IOC as the final arbiter has determined that his affiliation was to the United States of America.

French athletes have won 716 medals at the Summer Olympic Games, with fencing and cycling as the top medal-producing sports. France has won an additional 109 medals at the Winter Olympic Games, mostly in alpine skiing.
