Hungary at the Olympics

Hungary first participated at the Olympic Games at the inaugural 1896 Games, and has sent athletes to compete in most Summer Olympic Games and every Winter Olympic Games since then. The nation was not invited to the 1920 Games after World War I, and it joined the Soviet-led boycott of the 1984 Summer Olympics.
