Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games

Angola competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's eighth Olympic appearance at the Olympics, except the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles because of its partial support to the Soviet boycott.

Comité Olímpico Angolano sent the nation's largest delegation to the Games, surpassing the record by just three athletes short in Beijing. A total of 35 athletes, 5 men and 30 women, competed in 7 sports. For the second time in its history, Angola was represented by more female than male athletes at an Olympic event. Women's basketball and women's handball were the only team-based sports in which Angola had its representation to these Olympic games. The men's national basketball team, however, did not compete at the Olympics for the first time since 1988. Judoka Antonia Moreira was the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony. Angola, however, has yet to win its first ever Olympic medal.
