Bulgaria at the 2020 Summer Olympics
Bulgaria is scheduled to compete at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo from 24 July to 9 August 2020. Bulgarian athletes have appeared in every edition of the Summer Olympics since 1924, except for three different occasions: the 1948 Summer Olympics in London, and the 1932 and 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles because of the worldwide Great Depression, Bulgaria’s actions in the World War II and the Soviet boycott, respectively.
