Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games
Winter Games

Lebanon competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's sixteenth appearance at the Olympics, except the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne as a response to the Suez Crisis.

The Lebanese Olympic Committee sent the nation's largest delegation to the Games, after the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. A total of 10 athletes, 3 men and 7 women, competed in 7 different sports. For the first time in its Olympic history, Lebanon was represented by more female than male athletes.[1] Three of its athletes were born in the United States: foil fencers and siblings Zain and Mona Shaito, and freestyle swimmer Katya Bachrouche. Two other athletes had competed in Beijing, including sprinter Gretta Taslakian, who was at her third consecutive Olympics. Asian Games silver medalist Andrea Paoli, who became the first Lebanese taekwondo jin to participate in the Olympics, was the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony.

Lebanon, however, failed to win an Olympic medal in London since the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, where Hassan Bchara won the bronze for Greco-Roman wrestling.
