Estonia competed at the 1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, United States.

The 1932 Estonian Olympic Team[edit]

Estonian Olympic Committee did not send a full team to those games due to financial problems and tried to recruit Estonians living in the United States. Most of them were not prepared to compete on a short notice, and only Alfred Maasik and Osvald Käpp agreed.[1]


Estonian National Olympic representative was professor Ants Piip. Estonian attaché was an electrical engineer Charles Kodil.

Other delegations

Estonians in other delegations were Kalevi Kotkas for  Finland (FIN) in athletics; August Lootus was a reserve for  United States (USA) in sailing; the 1924 Summer Olympics bronze medalist Aleksander Klumberg was an athletics coach for  Poland (POL); and Valter Palm was a boxing coach for Finland.
