Barbara Pierre (born April 28, 1986)[nb] is a Haitian-born American track and field sprint athlete who competes internationally for the United States. Her specialty is the 60-meter dash and the 100-meter dash. She had her highest world ranking in 2013, when she was the fourth fastest sprinter in the world over 100 m with her personal best of 10.85 seconds.
Pierre represented Haiti at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. She competed at the 100 m 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.
