Summer Olympics appearances (overview)

The Antigua and Barbuda Olympic Association sent the nation's largest roster to the Games for the first time since 1996. A total of nine athletes, seven men and two women, were selected to compete only in athletics and swimming, due to the presence of the men's 4 × 100 m relay team.[2] Being the most experienced member of the team, sprinter Daniel Bailey was appointed to carry the nation's flag for the third time in the opening ceremony.[3]

Antigua and Barbuda, however, has yet to win its first ever Olympic medal.
