Hungary at the 2020 Summer Olympics

Hungary is scheduled to compete at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo from 24 July to 9 August 2020. Hungarian athletes have appeared in every edition of the Summer Olympic Games, except for two occasions. Hungary was not invited to the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp, because of its role in the first World War, and was also part of the Soviet boycott, when Los Angeles hosted the 1984 Summer Olympics.
