Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games
Winter Games

Morocco competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's thirteenth appearance at the Olympics, except the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, because of its partial support to the United States boycott.

Comité Olympique Marocain sent the nation's largest delegation to the Games. A total of 63 athletes, 46 men and 17 women, competed in 12 sports, including the nation's Olympic debut in equestrian. Men's football was the only team event in which Morocco had its representation in these Olympic games. Twelve athletes had competed in Beijing, including world indoor champion and middle-distance runner Abdalaati Iguider, and breaststroke swimmer Sara El Bekri. Arab Games champion and taekwondo jin Wiam Dislam was the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony. Among the sports played by the athletes, Morocco also marked its Olympic return in slalom canoeing and road cycling after long years of absence.

Morocco, however, failed to win a gold and a silver medal in the Olympics since 1976, after achieving poor athletic performance at these games. Abdalaati Iguider won the nation's only bronze medal in the men's 1500 metres.
