The Olympic Games in Antwerp took place in 1920 and were the sixth modern Summer Olympic Games.

Background

After the 1916 games were cancelled due to World War 1, the bidding process resumed for the 1920 event. Despite other bids from the United States, the committee preferred Antwerp as long as they were able to in the aftermath of the war. The only other pre war bids were already withdrawn in support of Antwerp, or in the case of Budapest were banned from the Games entirely as an antagonist country out of the war alongside Germany, Bulgaria and Austria.
