Archery[edit]

France sent eight archers in its third Olympic archery appearance, all of whom won at least three medals. The team ended up with one gold medal, four silvers, and a bronze. Because of the lack of competition, the team's worst possible result would have been five silvers and a bronze; thus, Brulé's victory over Belgium's van Innis in the individual moving bird at 50 metres to take the gold medal was the only actual success the team had.

The team won three medals, including one of each type, after four of the 15 men advanced to the semifinals. The two French featherweight boxers faced off in the finals, taking gold and silver.

Cycling[edit]

Thirteen cyclists represented France in 1920. It was the nation's fifth appearance in the sport. After a disappointing result in 1912, the French road cyclists had a better Games in 1920. The four-man team took the gold medal in the team time trial, on the strength of three top-10 individual performances including Canteloube's individual bronze. The track cyclists were unable to take a medal, with highlights including Lanusse reaching the semifinals of the sprint and Alancourt taking eighth in the 50 kilometres.

Equestrian[edit]

Twenty-four equestrians represented France in 1920. It was the nation's third appearance in the sport, having been one of three countries (along with Belgium and the United States) to have appeared at each Olympic equestrian competition. For the first time, France earned no gold medals in equestrian. The best results for the country were in vaulting with a pair of silvers, one by Field in the individual and one by the team in combined score.

Fencing[edit]

Eighteen fencers represented France in 1920. It was the nation's fourth appearance in the sport, and first since 1908. France, as usual, had a strong performance in the sport. The French épéeists swept the individual medals for the second time (having accomplished the feat in 1908 as well), and the foilists took a silver and a bronze. France took a medal in each of the three team events, but won no more gold medals. The team's eight total medals were the most of any nation in 1920, and the gold medal in the épée made France one of only two nations to win any golds (Italy took the other five).

Football[edit]

The team was defeated there by Czechoslovakia. Under the Bergvall System in use for the tournament, France would still have the opportunity to play for the silver medal; however, the team left Belgium after their semifinal loss and did not play in the tournament for second place.

Under the Bergvall System in place at the time, Sweden's losses in the gold medal final and the silver medal semifinals meant that France played no further; a far different fate from the other semifinal loser—the United States, who won the silver medal.
