|Summer Olympics appearances (overview)|
Iceland 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.
Since the nation's official debut in 1912, Icelandic athletes have appeared in every edition of the Summer Olympic Games, except for four occasions as a result of the worldwide Great Depression (1920 to 1932). Countries marched in the order of traditional Japanese characters using Gojūon script; therefore, Iceland was third in the parade of nations following Greece and Refugee Olympic Team, which has traditionally led the march since 1928.
The following is the list of number of competitors participating in the Games:
- Note–Ranks given for track events are within the athlete's heat only
