Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

Monaco 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 rescheduled for 23 July to 8 August 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[1] Since the nation's official debut in 1920, Monegasque athletes have appeared in every edition of the Summer Olympic Games throughout the modern era, except for three occasions. Monaco did not attend the 1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles at the period of the worldwide Great Depression, failed to register any athletes at the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, and also joined the United States-led boycott when Moscow hosted the 1980 Summer Olympics.

Table tennis

Monaco entered one athlete into the table tennis competition for the first time at the Games. Chinese-born Yang Xiaoxin scored a fourth-match final triumph to book one of the five available places in the women's singles at the 2021 ITTF World Qualification Tournament in Doha, Qatar.[2]
