Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

The Chile Olympic Committee (Spanish: Comité Olímpico de Chile, COCH) sent a total of 35 athletes to the Games, 21 men and 14 women, to compete in 17 sports. There was only a single competitor in track cycling, judo, modern pentathlon, rowing, shooting, swimming and taekwondo. Among the sports played by the athletes, Chile made its Olympics debut in artistic gymnastics and Greco-Roman wrestling. The Chilean team featured six athletes who competed at their fourth Olympics: archer Denisse van Lamoen, épée fencer Paris Inostroza, table tennis player Berta Rodríguez and three of its oldest members from the equestrian jumping team. Van Lamoen was also appointed by the committee to carry the nation's flag at the opening ceremony.

With poor athletic performance and the absence of tennis players in the team, Chile failed to win a single medal for the first time in Olympic history since 1996. Gymnast Tomás González missed out on an Olympic medal in London, after finishing fourth in men's floor and vault exercises.[1][2]
