Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

Senegal competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's thirteenth appearance at the Olympics.

The Senegalese National Olympic and Sports Committee (French: Comité National Olympique et Sportif Sénégalais) sent the nation's second-largest delegation ever to the Games, tying with the delegation sent to Moscow in 1980. A total of 32 athletes, 25 men and 7 women, competed in 8 sports. Men's football was the only team-based sport in which Senegal was represented at these Olympic games. There was only a single competitor in sprint canoeing, fencing, judo, and taekwondo.

Four Senegalese athletes had competed in Beijing, including Ndiss Kaba Badji, who finished sixth in men's long jump. Breaststroke swimmer Malick Fall became the first Senegalese athlete to compete in four Olympic games. Meanwhile, track sprinter Amy Mbacke Thiam made her Olympic comeback in London after an eight-year absence. Judoka and double African champion Hortense Diédhiou was the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony.

Senegal, however, failed to win its first Olympic medal since the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, where Amadou Dia Bâ won silver in the 400m hurdles.
