Summer Olympics appearances

The Oceanic island nation of the Federated States of Micronesia competed at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, from 27 July to 12 August 2012.[1] This was the nation's fourth consecutive appearance at the Olympics.

Federated States of Micronesia National Olympic Committee (FSMNOC) sent the nation's largest delegation to the Games in Olympic history, surpassing its delegations from the previous three games by a single athlete. Six athletes were selected to the team, competing only in 4 different sports; two of them had competed in Beijing, including swimmer Kerson Hadley, who set his fastest time in the men's freestyle event. Weightlifter Manuel Minginfel, who competed in the Olympics since the national debut, repeated his best performance from Athens, after finishing in tenth place.[2] FSMNOC appointed him to reprise his role for the fourth time as the Federated States of Micronesia's flag bearer at the opening ceremony. The island nation, however, has yet to win its first ever Olympic medal.
