Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

Comité Olímpico Ecuatoriano sent the nation's largest delegation to the Games. A total of 36 athletes, 23 men and 13 women, competed in 11 sports; there was only a single competitor in sprint canoeing, equestrian, judo, and shooting. Five Ecuadorian athletes had competed in Beijing, including weightlifter Alexandra Escobar, who was at her third Olympic games. Argentina-born sprint kayaker César de Cesare became the nation's first male flag bearer at the opening ceremony since 1996. Among the sports played by the athletes, Ecuador also marked its Olympic debut in women's triathlon.

Ecuador, however, failed to win an Olympic medal for the first time since 2004. Sprinter Alex Quiñónez qualified successfully for the final rounds in the men's 200 metres, but missed out of the nation's first medal in London, after finishing farther from the standings.
