Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games

The Southeastern Asian nation of Laos competed at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, from 27 July – 12 August 2012. This was the nation's eighth appearance at the Olympics, except the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, because of its partial support to the Soviet boycott.

Three Laotian athletes were selected to the team by wild card entries in athletics and swimming, without having qualified. This was also the nation's smallest team after the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. Sprinter Kilakone Siphonexay was the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony. Laos has yet to win its first Olympic medal.
