Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games
Winter Games

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

Pakistan Olympic Association sent a total of 21 athletes, 19 men and 2 women, to compete in 4 different sports. Four of their athletes were selected to the team under wild card entries, without having qualified. Men's field hockey was the only team-sport in which Pakistan had its representation in these Olympic games. Field hockey team captain Sohail Abbas was the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony. Pakistan, however, failed to win a single Olympic medal in London since the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, where the men's field hockey team won the bronze.
