Tuvalu participates in the Olympic Games in the Summer Olympics. They have yet to compete at the winter games.

The Tuvalu Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (TASNOC) was recognised as a National Olympic Committee in July 2007.[1] Tuvalu entered the Olympic Games for the first time at the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, China, with a weightlifter and two athletes in the men's and women's 100-metre sprints. A team with athletes in the same events represented Tuvalu at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom.[2]

Etimoni Timuani was the sole representative of Tuvalu at the 2016 Summer Olympics in the 100 m event.[3]
