Canada, represented by the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC), competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom from 27 July to 12 August 2012. Canadian athletes have competed in every Summer Olympic Games since 1900, except the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow because of the United States-led boycott. Canada sent a total of 281 athletes to the Games to compete in 24 sports. The COC set a goal of finishing into the top 12 in total medals;[2] but the nation failed to achieve this, finishing with a total of 18 medals. Canada matched its total medal count to that in Beijing 2008, where the nation had also won the same number of medals.

However, Canada won only a single gold medal in London, its lowest count of golds in a Summer Olympic games since 1976; it was awarded to trampoline gymnast Rosannagh MacLennan in the women's event. In addition to the gold medal, Canada left London with 5 silver and 12 bronze medals. Diving pair Émilie Heymans and Jennifer Abel won the nation's first medal in the women's synchronized springboard event. Heymans, however, became the first Canadian athlete to win Olympic medals in four consecutive games. Canada also won the bronze medal match in the women's soccer tournament, the first for the nation since 1904, and the first in a traditional team sport since 1936.[3] Among the countries having one gold medal in previous Olympics, Canada's performance at these Games has broken the record for the highest total medals. This despite several Canadian athletes just missing out of the medal finishes including the men's 4 x 100 m sprint relay team who were disqualified after finishing in third.

Medalists[edit]

Medal failures[edit]

Several Canadian athletes, considered as strong medal contenders, missed out of the podium during their final events. The men's sprint relay team, led by Jared Connaughton, held the third fastest time in the finals, but were later disqualified for a lane violation.[4] Trampoline gymnasts Jason Burnett and Karen Cockburn missed out of winning another Olympic medal for the first time. Triathlete and two-time Olympic medalist Simon Whitfield was forced to withdraw from the men's event after suffering minor injuries from a bike crash.[5] Springboard diver and medal favourite Alexander Despatie made a disappointing performance in the men's final event, finishing only in eleventh place. Track cyclist Tara Whitten finished fourth in a grueling two-day women's omnium event, when she was a former two time world champion in the event.[6] Other medal failures included the female badminton team's defeat in the bronze medal match, defending champion Eric Lamaze, who failed to advance into the finals in the individual jumping event, and fourth-place finishes in swimming, specifically in the women's 4x200 freestyle relay event, and in synchronized swimming.

Delegation[edit]

The Canadian Olympic Committee selected a team of 281 athletes, 119 men and 153 women, to compete in all sports except handball and field hockey. The nation's team size was roughly smaller by 60 athletes from the previous games. Along with the nation's athletes, Canada also sent a team of 93 coaches and 137 members from the mission staff.[1] For the second time in its Olympic history, Canada was represented by more female than male athletes. Athletics was the largest team by sport, with a total of 45 competitors.

The Canadian team included several past Olympic champions, three of them defending (freestyle wrestler Carol Huynh, equestrian jumping rider Eric Lamaze, and the men's coxed eight rowing team). Equestrian show jumper Ian Millar became the first athlete to compete at his tenth Olympic games, and also, the oldest athlete of the team at age 65.[7] Eight rower Lesley Thompson, Canada's oldest female athlete, made her seventh Olympic appearance, having participated since 1984 (except the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, where she was not selected). Gymnast Victoria Moors, on the other hand, was the youngest athlete of the team, at age 15. Other Canadian athletes featured road cyclist Clara Hughes, who competed at both Summer and Winter Olympic games, two-time silver medalist Alexander Despatie in springboard diving, multiple-time Olympic medalist Adam van Koeverden in sprint kayaking, and swimmers Ryan Cochrane and Brent Hayden.

Former backstroke swimmer and 1992 Summer Olympics gold medalist Mark Tewksbury was the nation's chef de mission, while former diver and 1984 Summer Olympics gold medalist Sylvie Bernier became an assistant chef de mission.[8] Triathlete and double Olympic medalist Simon Whitfield was the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony.[1]

Archery[edit]

Canada has qualified one male and female archer. Jason Lyon won a quota spot by finishing in the top 5 in the men's individual event at the 2011 World Archery Championships in Turin, Italy. However, Crispin Duenas won the right to represent Canada at the Games after winning the Olympic trials. Marie-Pier Beaudet won the continental qualification event and the Canadian trials to qualify for the 2012 Olympics.[9]

Badminton[edit]

Canada has qualified four badminton athletes. The team was officially announced on 18 May 2012.[13] The women's doubles pairing of Alexandra Bruce and Michelle Li finished last in the round-robin portion, losing all three of their matches.[14] However, the top two teams in the group were disqualified for attempting to intentionally lose matches so they would have an easier match-up in the quarterfinals.[15] The duo was advanced to their quarterfinals and won,[14] but lost in the semifinals and bronze medal game.
