Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

Guam competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 5 to 21 August 2016. This was the nation's eighth consecutive appearance at the Summer Olympics.

Guam National Olympic Committee sent the nation's smallest delegation to the Games since 2004. Five athletes, three men and two women, were selected to the Guamanian team to compete only in athletics, mountain biking, and swimming.[2] Three of them made their Olympic debut in Rio de Janeiro, with swimmers Pilar Shimizu and Benjamin Schulte (billed as Benny the Bream by the crowd), who led the squad as Guam's flag bearer in the opening ceremony, returning for their second appearance from London 2012.[1] Guam, however, has yet to win its first ever Olympic medal.


Guam has received universality slots from IAAF to send two athletes (one male and one female) to the Olympics.[3][4][5]
