Taiwan (governed by the Republic of China) competed at the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. 40 competitors, 37 men and 3 women, took part in 46 events in 7 sports.[1]

It competed as "Taiwan" in this competition.[2] The International Olympic Committee (IOC) required the ROC (which under Chiang Kai-shek asserted that it was the lawful government of China) to compete as Taiwan.[3]

In subsequent years pressure from the People’s Republic of China on sports organizations has caused Taiwan to compete as Chinese Taipei as per the Nagoya Resolution.
