Malaysia competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's fourteenth appearance at the Olympics, although it had previously competed in two other games under the name Malaya. Malaysia, however, did not participate at the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, because of its partial support to the United States boycott.

Olympic Council of Malaysia sent a total of 30 athletes to the Games, 17 men and 13 women, to compete in 9 sports. This was also the youngest delegation in Malaysia's Olympic history, with more than half under the age of 25, and many of them were expected to reach their peak in time for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Nine Malaysian athletes had competed in Beijing, including platform diver Pandelela Rinong, who was appointed by the council to carry the nation's flag at the opening ceremony. Diver Yeoh Ken Nee, on the other hand, made his Olympic return in London, after a twelve-year absence. For the first time since its official Olympic debut, Malaysia did not qualify athletes in taekwondo.

This was Malaysia's most successful Olympics after 16 years, winning only a total of 2 medals. Pandelela Rinong won the nation's first Olympic medal in women's platform diving. Meanwhile, badminton player Lee Chong Wei, who managed to repeat his silver from Beijing, became the first Malaysian athlete to win two medals in Olympic history.
