Guatemala first participated at the Olympic Games in 1952, but then missed the next three Olympiads. Guatemala has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since 1968. The nation has participated in the Winter Olympic Games only once, in 1988.

Guatemala won their first Olympic medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics, when Erick Barrondo took second place in the men's 20km walk.[1]

The National Olympic Committee for Guatemala was created in 1947 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee that same year.
