Guatemala won its first Olympic medal sixty years after its first Olympic appearance, during the 2012 Summer Olympics, when Erick Barrondo took second place in the men's 20 km walk.[1] This makes Guatemala notable as one of the few countries with more Nobel laureates than Olympic medalists.[2]

The National Olympic Committee for Guatemala was created in 1947 and recognized by the International Olympic Committee that same year.
