Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

The Oceanic island nation of Solomon Islands competed at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's eighth consecutive appearance at the Olympics.

Four athletes from the Solomon Islands were selected to the team by receiving their wild card places in three different sports, without having qualified. Weightlifter Jenly Tegu Wini was the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony. Solomon Islands, however, has yet to win its first ever Olympic medal.

Athletics

Solomon Islands have selected two athletes by wildcard. Both athletes had to participate in a preliminary heat in the 100 m. Chris Walasi finished sixth in the heats, and twenty-third in preliminary overall. Meanwhile, Pauline Kwalea finished fifth in the heats, and twenty-first in preliminary overall. Both of these athletes failed to qualify into the main event.

Lomo's performance was congratulated by the Oceania National Olympic Committee and seen as being impressive from other coaches both in and out of Oceania.[3]
