The first Portuguese athlete to compete in the Olympics was Francisco Lázaro, who took part in the Marathon at the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm.

Sadly, he died after the race as he had smeared his body in oils and grease to, in his opinion, protect from the sun, which prevented the skin from breathing...

I don't know that history has recorded the first woman to compete in the Olympics. History has recorded that the first woman to win a gold medal was Charlotte Cooper of Great Britain who won gold in ladies singles tennis in the 1900 Olympics in Paris. The 1900 Olympics were the second Olympics of the modern era and the first that women were allowed to compete in. Women were not allowed to compete in the first modern Olympics held in Greece in 1896.
