Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games
Winter Games

Hong Kong competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's fifteenth appearance at the Olympics, excluding the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, because of the United States boycott.

The Sports Federation and Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China sent a total of 42 athletes to the Games, 22 men and 20 women, to compete in 13 sports. This was also the youngest delegation in Hong Kong's Olympic history, with about half the team under the age of 25, and many of them were expected to reach their peak in time for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Eight Hong Kong athletes had competed in Beijing, including track and road cyclist Wong Kam Po, who competed at his fifth Olympic games as the oldest and most experienced athlete, at age 39. Three other athletes made their third Olympic appearance: swimmer Hannah Wilson, table tennis player Tie Ya Na, and single sculls rower So Sau Wah. Hong Kong also marked its Olympic debut in men's sprint relay event, artistic gymnastics, and weightlifting.

Hong Kong left London with only a single Olympic medal, and the third in history. Road and track cyclist Lee Wai Sze, who was the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony, won the bronze medal in the women's keirin event.
