Barbara Pierre (born April 28, 1987) is a Haitian born American track and field sprint athlete who competes internationally for the United States. Her specialty is the 60m and the 100 meter race.

Pierre represented Haiti at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. She competed at the 100 metres sprint and placed fourth in her first round heat, which normally meant elimination. However, her time of 11.52 was among the ten fastest losing times, resulting in a second round spot. There she failed to qualify for the semi finals as her time of 11.56 was the fifth time of her race.[1]
