Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

The Philippines is scheduled to compete at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, from 24 July to 9 August 2020. Since the nation's official debut in 1924, Filipino athletes have appeared in every edition of the Summer Olympic Games, but did not attend the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow because of the nation's partial support for the US-led boycott.

Philippine Football Federation president Mariano Araneta was appointed in August 2019 as chef de mission of the Filipino delegation to the Games by Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) president Abraham Tolentino.[1] Araneta succeeded Joey Romasanta who was appointed as chef de mission for the same edition of the Olympics by Tolentino's predecessor, Ricky Vargas.[2]

As of October 2019, the Philippines qualified two athletes for Tokyo 2020, Ernest Obiena in men's pole vault[3] and Carlos Yulo in artistic gymnastics. The Philippines is targeting to qualify around 38 athletes for the Olympics.[4]
