Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games
Winter Games

South Korea (officially the Republic of Korea) competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, from July 27 to August 12, 2012. This was the nation's sixteenth appearance at the Olympics, except the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow because of the United States boycott. The Korean Olympic Committee sent the nation's smallest delegation to the Games since 1992. A total of 248 athletes, 135 men and 113 women, competed in 22 sports.

South Korea left London with a total of 28 medals (13 gold, 8 silver, and 7 bronze), finishing fifth in the medal standings and tying its record with Beijing for the most gold medals at a single Olympics.[1] Six of these medals were awarded to the team in fencing, five in shooting, four in archery, and three in judo. South Korean athletes dominated in archery, where they won gold medals, and broke two world records in all but one sporting events. With the absence of baseball and softball at the Olympics, South Korea's team-based athletes proved successful in London, as the men's football team won the bronze medal against the neighbouring Japan. For the first time in its history, South Korea had won Olympic medals in team fencing.

Among the nation's medalists were pistol shooter Jin Jong-Oh, and taekwondo jin Hwang Kyung-Seon, who both successfully defended their Olympic titles from Beijing. Three South Korean athletes won Olympic gold medals for the first time in history: gymnast Yang Hak-Seon in the men's vault exercises, archer Oh Jin-Hyek in the men's individual event, and sabre fencer Kim Ji-Yeon in the women's individual event. Park Tae-Hwan, who won two silver in London, emerged as the most successful South Korean swimmer in history, with a total of four Olympic medals.

Medalists[edit]

Delegation[edit]

The South Korean Olympic delegation participating in the opening ceremony at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

The Korean Olympic Committee (KOC) selected a team of 245 athletes, 133 men and 112 women, to compete in 24 sports; it was the nation's smallest team sent to the Olympics since 1992. South Korea did not qualify athletes in basketball, canoeing, equestrian, and tennis.[2] There was only a single competitor in rhythmic gymnastics, and in triathlon.

The South Korean team featured nine defending champions from Beijing, including freestyle swimmer Park Tae-Hwan, the men's archery team (led by Im Dong-Hyun), pistol shooter Jin Jong-Oh, weightlifters Jang Mi-Ran and Sa Jae-Hyouk, and taekwondo jins Hwang Kyung-Seon and Cha Dong-Min. Among these champions, Jin-Jong Oh only managed to defend his Olympic title for the second consecutive time. Handball player Yoon Kyung-Shin, who competed at his fifth Olympics since 1992 (except the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, where his team did not qualify), was the oldest athlete of the team, at age 39, and later became South Korea's flag bearer at the opening ceremony.[2] Platform diver Kim Su-Ji, on the other hand, was the youngest of the team, at age 14.

Other notable South Korean athletes featured judoka and top medal contenders Wang Ki-Chun and Kim Jae-Bum, foil fencer and Olympic silver medalist Nam Hyun-Hee, and butterfly swimmer and Youth Olympic gold medalist Chang Gyu-Cheol.

The following table lists the number of South Korean competitors who participated in each Olympic sport. Note that swimming, synchronized swimming, diving and water polo are technically considered as one sport, aquatics. However, due to their significant practical differences, they are listed separately by tradition.

Controversy

Park Jong-Woo was not present at the medal ceremony after the gold medal match between Mexico and Brazil and did not receive the bronze medal with the rest of his team due to his political position on the Liancourt Rocks, which are disputed both by South Korea and Japan by having a claim on the islands, after FIFA was notified about Park holding a sign of South Korea having claim on Dokdo, the Korean name for the islets.[16] On 11 February 2013, Park attended an International Olympic Committee disciplinary hearing at Lausanne, Switzerland. After the Disciplinary Commission reviewed Park's action at the Olympics, the IOC decided to award the player the bronze medal he had been barred from collecting for several months.
