Virgin Islands at the 2006 Winter Olympics

The United States Virgin Islands sent a delegation to compete at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy from 10–26 February 2006. The only competitor sent by the USVI was Anne Abernathy, who broke her wrist in a practice run and was therefore unable to compete.

                                     

ⓘ Virgin Islands at the Olympics

The United States Virgin Islands first competed at the Olympic Games in 1968, and have since sent athletes to compete at every Summer Olympic Games except in 1980, when they took part in the boycott to the Moscow Games. They have also participated in seven Olympic Winter Games since 1988, having only missed the 2010 Winter Olympics. The only Olympic medal won by a Virgin Islander was a silver by Peter Holmberg in sailing at the 1988 Summer Olympics.

The Virgin Islands Olympic Committee was formed in 1967 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee the same year.
