Mongolia at the 2012 Summer Olympics

Mongolia competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's twelfth appearance at the Olympics, except the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, because of its partial support to the Soviet boycott.

Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

The Mongolian National Olympic Committee sent the nation's largest delegation to the Games since 1992. A total of 29 athletes, 16 men and 13 women, competed in 7 sports. The Mongolian team featured past Olympic champions, including judoka Naidangiin Tüvshinbayar, who became the nation's first ever gold medalist, and pistol shooter Otryadyn Gündegmaa, who won the silver in Beijing. Marathon runner Ser-Od Bat-Ochir, who competed at his third Olympics, was Mongolia's flag bearer at the opening ceremony.

This was Mongolia's most successful Olympics, winning the total of five Olympic medals (2 silver and 3 bronze), and surpassing the record by just a single medal short from Beijing. All of these medals were awarded to the athletes in boxing, judo, and wrestling. Judoka Naidangiin Tüvshinbayar became the first Mongolian athlete to win two medals in Olympic history, including the silver in London. Meanwhile, boxer Nyambayaryn Tögstsogt, the youngest member of the contingent, at age 20, claimed the silver medal in men's flyweight division. Through social media, Mongolia dominated the standings as the nation with the most tweets for these Olympic games.[2]
