Hormigo represented Portugal at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, where she competed for the women's extra-lightweight class (48 kg). She defeated India's Devi Khumujam Tomb in the first preliminary round, before losing out her next match by a waza-ari (half-point), and an ōuchi gari (big inner reap) to North Korea's Pak Ok-Song. Because her opponent advanced further into the semi-finals, Hormigo offered another shot for the bronze medal by defeating Kazakhstan's Kelbet Nurgazina, with two koka, and a sankaku gatame (arm crush triangular arm lock), in the repechage rounds. Unfortunately, she finished only in seventh place, after losing out the final repechage bout to Russia's Lyudmila Bogdanova, who successfully scored a waza-ari and a tomoe nage (circle throw), at the end of the five-minute period.
