Paraguay at the 2020 Summer Olympics

Paraguay is expected to compete at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Originally scheduled to take place from 24 July to 9 August 2020, the Games have been postponed to a date not later than summer 2021, because of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.[1] It will be the nation's thirteenth appearance at the Summer Olympics, with the exception of the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow because of the nation's partial support for the US-led boycott.
