Chinese Taipei at the 2012 Summer Olympics

Chinese Taipei competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. "Chinese Taipei" was the designated name used by Taiwan to participate in some international organizations and almost all sporting events, including the Olympic Games. Neither the common name "Taiwan" nor the official name "Republic of China" would be used due primarily to opposition from the People's Republic of China. This was the nation's eighth consecutive appearance at the Olympics.

With the absence of baseball and softball at the Olympics, the Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee sent the nation's smallest delegation to the Games since 1992. A total of 44 athletes, 19 men and 25 women, competed in 14 sports. For the second time in its Olympic history, Chinese Taipei was represented by more female than male athletes. There was only a single competitor in fencing, judo, rowing, and sailing. This was also the youngest delegation in Chinese Taipei's Olympic history, with more than half under the age of 25, and many of them were expected to reach their peak in time for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Fourteen athletes had competed in Beijing, including taekwondo jin and fourth-placer Yang Shu-Chun. Four Chinese Taipei athletes made their third consecutive Olympic appearance: table tennis players Chuang Chih-Yuan and Huang Yi-Hua, and badminton players Cheng Wen-Hsing and Chien Yu-Chin in the women's doubles. Weightlifter Chen Shih-chieh, who competed at his first Olympics, was the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony.

Chinese Taipei left London with two medals: a silver and a bronze, the lowest in Summer Olympic history since 1996. These medals were awarded to the female athletes in weightlifting and taekwondo.
