Guatemala at the Olympics
|Guatemala at the Olympic Games|
Guatemala first participated at the Olympic Games in 1952, but then missed the next three Olympiads. Guatemala has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since 1968. The nation has participated in the Winter Olympic Games only once, in 1988.
Guatemala won their first Olympic medal 60 years after their first appearance, during the 2012 Summer Olympics, when Erick Barrondo took second place in the men's 20 km walk. This makes Guatemala notable as one of the only countries with more Nobel laureates than Olympic medalists.
