Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

Bermuda 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 23 July to 8 August 2021, because of the COVID-19 pandemic.[1] Since the nation's official debut in 1936, Bermudian athletes have appeared in every edition of the Summer Olympic Games, but did not attend the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow because of the nation's partial support for the US-led boycott.

Non-competing sports

Equestrian

Bermuda entered one dressage rider into the Olympic competition by finishing in the top four, outside the group selection, of the individual FEI Olympic Rankings for Groups D and E (North, Central, and South America), marking the country's recurrence to the sport after an eight-year absence.[4] The quota was later withdrawn, following an injury of Annabelle Collins' main horse Joyero and a failure to obtain minimum eligibility requirements (MER) aboard a new horse Chuppy Checker.[5]
