Joaquín Alberto del Olmo Blanco (born 20 April 1969 in Tampico) is a retired Mexican football midfielder and current consultant [1] for Real Oviedo.

A defensive midfielder who occasionally played as a fullback at international level, he began his top-division career with Tampico in the 1988–89 season.[2] Del Olmo joined Veracruz in 1990 and soon became a starter; in the 1993–94 season, he played 33 matches and scored 4 times.[2] He joined America after the 1994 World Cup, staying for two years before moving to the Netherlands to Vitesse Arnhem in the 1996–97 season.[3] Upon del Olmo's return to Mexico in 1997, he represented Necaxa, Tigres, Puebla, and Chiapas during the following six years.[2] Most of that time was spent at Tigres, where he participated in the Invierno 2001 final.[4] He closed his top-flight career with UNAM, playing on the Pumas team that won consecutive championships in 2004.[2]

Del Olmo also earned 51 caps and 3 goals for the Mexican national team. He made his international debut on 29 June 1993 against Costa Rica, in a 2–0 victory.[5] Under coach Miguel Mejia Baron, del Olmo represented Mexico in that year's CONCACAF Gold Cup[6] and made the squad for the 1994 FIFA World Cup, where he played in Mexico's first-round games against Norway, Ireland, and Italy.[7] He also appeared at the 1995 Copa América[8] and 1996 CONCACAF Gold Cup,[9] as well as several qualifiers for the 1998 FIFA World Cup,[7] but he missed out on Manuel Lapuente's final World Cup squad. After a long absence from the team, del Olmo was recalled at age 32 by Enrique Meza in 2001. He earned his last cap on 16 June 2001 in a 2–1 loss at Estadio Azteca to Costa Rica in a qualifier for the 2002 FIFA World Cup.[10]
