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 was forced to participate in the Soviet-led boycott of the 1984 Summer Olympics.

Hungarian athletes have won a total of 476 medals at the Summer Games and 6 medals at the Winter Games, with fencing as the top medal-producing sport. Hungary has won more Olympic medals than any other nation that has never hosted the Games. Hungary is also the most successful football team in the history of Olympics.

The National Olympic Committee for Hungary is the Hungarian Olympic Committee, and was created and recognized in 1895.
