The Barbados Olympic Association sent the nation's smallest team to the Games since the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal. A total of ten athletes, nine men and one woman, competed only in five different sports. Half of them had previously competed in Sydney, including track star and Olympic bronze medalist Obadele Thompson, and four-time Olympic skeet shooter Michael Maskell, who later became the nation's flag bearer in the opening ceremony.[1]

Barbados left Athens without a single Olympic medal, although Thompson managed to achieve a seventh-place finish in the 100 metres as the nation's highest result.
