Barbados made its first Summer Olympic Games appearance in 1968 and has competed ever since, with the exception of 1980 where it participated in the United States-led boycott. However, they did compete in 1960 with Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago as the British West Indies. The nation typically sends a small team of around ten athletes to each game, competing in athletics, shooting and swimming and historically in cycling and sailing. The nation’s only medal was a bronze in athletics at the 2000 Olympics where Obadele Thompson finished third in the men’s 100m event.
