Olympic history (summary)

Winter Games

Peru competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's seventeenth appearance at the Olympics, except the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki.

Comité Olímpico Peruano sent a total of 16 athletes, 9 men and 7 women, to compete in 9 sports, tying its record with Barcelona in 1992. Three athletes had competed in Beijing, including taekwondo jin Peter López, who nearly missed out of medal standings in the bronze medal match. Marathon runner Gladys Tejeda, who competed at her first Olympics, became the nation's first female flag bearer at the opening ceremony since 2000. Peru, however, failed to win a single Olympic medal, since the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, where Juan Giha won the silver for skeet shooting.

Raúl Pacheco finished twenty-first in men's marathon.
