Ecuador

History

Ecuador made its first Summer Olympic appearance in 1924. Their next appearance wouldn’t be until 1968, where they have competed ever since. The nation historically sends around a dozen athletes to compete, but for the last two Olympics they have expanded and sent over 30 athletes. Ecuador competes in various sports with the most common ones being athletics, boxing, cycling, judo, shooting, swimming and weightlifting.

Ecuador has won two medals in its history, both from the same athlete. Race walker Jefferson Perez won gold at the 1996 Olympics in the men’s 20km race walk event. He would follow up with a silver medal twelve years late at the 2008 Olympics.
