Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games
Winter Games

Brazil competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's twenty-first appearance at the Summer Olympics, excluding the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam. The Brazilian Olympic Committee (Portuguese: Comitê Olímpico Brasileiro, COB) sent a total of 258 athletes to the Games, 136 men and 122 women, to compete in 24 sports.

Brazil left London with a total of 17 Olympic medals (3 gold, 5 silver, and 9 bronze). This was the nation's most successful Olympics, winning the largest number of medals at a single games, and surpassing two medals short of the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, and of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. Four of these medals were each awarded to the team in judo and volleyball, three in boxing, and two in swimming. Brazil's team-based athletes proved particularly successful in London, as the indoor volleyball teams and men's football team won gold and silver medals, respectively. The women's volleyball team also managed to defend its Olympic title from Beijing. For the first time since 1992, Brazil did not win an Olympic medal in athletics.

Among the nation's medalists were gymnast Arthur Zanetti, and modern pentathlete Yane Marques, who both won Brazil's first Olympic medals in their respective sports. Sailor Robert Scheidt, who took the bronze in London, became one of the most successful Brazilian athletes in history with a total of five Olympic medals, tying his record with Torben Grael. Brothers Esquiva and Yamaguchi Falcão set the nation's historical record, as they each achieved an Olympic medal in men's boxing for the first time since 1968.

With Rio de Janeiro being the host city of the 2016 Summer Olympics, a Brazilian segment was performed during the closing ceremony.

Medalists[edit]

Delegation[edit]

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff with part of the Olympic delegation.

The Brazilian Olympic Committee selected a team of 258 athletes, 136 men and 122 women, to compete in all sports, except badminton and field hockey; it was the nation's second-largest team sent to the Olympics, failing by only five athletes short of the record in Beijing. There was only a single competitor in archery, slalom canoeing, modern pentathlon, and freestyle wrestling. Brazil also marked its Olympic return in men's basketball after a sixteen-year absence.

The Brazilian team featured three defending champions from Beijing, including long jumper Maurren Maggi and freestyle swimmer César Cielo, who both became the nation's first athletes to win gold in their sporting events. Equestrian show jumper Rodrigo Pessoa, and table tennis player Hugo Hoyama became the second and third Brazilian athlete to compete in six Olympic games. Pessoa, a triple Olympic medalist, was also the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony.[2] Meanwhile, three athletes made their fifth Olympic appearance: beach volleyballer and double medalist Emanuel Rego, sailor and multiple-time medalist Robert Scheidt, and football player Formiga. Equestrian eventing rider Serguei Fofanoff, at age 43, was the oldest athlete of the team, while slalom kayaker Ana Sátila was the youngest at age 16.

Other notable Brazilian athletes featured NBA basketball players Leandro Barbosa and Tiago Splitter, taekwondo jin and bronze medalist Natália Falavigna, double New York marathon champion Marílson dos Santos, and medley swimmer and multiple-time Pan American games medalist Thiago Pereira.

Archery[edit]

Brazil has qualified one archer.
