* The athlete who finished in second place, Lyudmila Blonska of the Ukraine, tested positive for a banned substance.[1] Both the A and the B tests were positive, therefore Blonska was stripped of her silver medal, and Farkas moved up a position.

Boxing[edit]

Hungary qualified five boxers for the Olympic boxing tournament. Szellő qualified at the World Championships.[2] Varga and Kalucza brought the Hungarian boxing squad up to four by qualifying at the first European qualifying event.[3] Bedák was the fifth and final Hungarian to join the team, at the 2nd European tournament.[4]
