At the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Martinez was given a privilege and honor of carrying the national flag at the opening ceremony. He competed again for the second time in the 10 m air rifle, where he placed last again out of forty-six shooters in the qualifying rounds, with a slightly improved score of 571 points.

He placed fiftieth in the men's 10 m air rifle, with a total score of 569 points. Few days later, Martinez competed for his second event, 50 m rifle prone, where he placed fifty-fifth in the qualifying rounds, with a total score of 576 points, just one target ahead from his last attempt of Egypt's Hazem Mohamed.
