Barbados first competed at the Summer Olympic Games in 1968, and has participated in each Games since then, missing only the 1980 Summer Olympics by participating in the American-led boycott of those games. The country's only Olympic medal to date is a bronze won by sprinter Obadele Thompson in the men's 100 metres at the 2000 Summer Olympics.

Barbados competed as part of the West Indies Federation in 1960. Barbadian athlete James Wedderburn was part of the 4 x 400m relay team which won the bronze medal that year.[1]

Barbados has never competed in the Winter Olympic Games.
