Athletes from Burma competed at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, Korea. The nation sent a small delegation of two athletes and three officials.

A military coup occurred in Burma the day after the Games' opening ceremony. Burma's athletes competed nonetheless, but the country was then absent from the 1988 Summer Paralympics, held just after the Olympics.[1]
