The 1980 Summer Olympic Games were hosted by Moscow, while tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States were still high owing to the Cold War. At the time, the Soviet Union was engaged in a conflict with Afghanistan, and the US boycotted the Olympics as a form of diplomatic protest.
Four years later, the Soviet Union retaliated by boycotting the 1984 Summer Olympics being hosted in Los Angeles.
