The 2020 Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony had the country of Swaziland walking in with its new name, 'Eswatani,' earlier. Swaziland competed in the Olympics for the first time during the 1972 Munich Games, before missing the next two editions. They have been a regular feature at the Games since the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics but will compete with their new name for the first time after the country's king changed its name to Eswatani in 2018.
