Ten teams have now chosen training camps in NI for the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, which begin in London next month.
Sports Minister Carál Ní Chuilín said: "I am sure we will all join in welcoming these athletes, coaches and support staff to Ireland.
"With all 10 teams, I hope their experiences here will provide the best possible preparation and provide a springboard for Olympic success.
"This is not only an endorsement for local facilities but also a boost for athletes here as world-class competitors prepare in their midst."
Some of the other teams include China's gymnasts, Australia and Cuba's boxers and athletics teams from Sudan, Qatar, Egypt and Kuwait.
