The Barbados Olympic Association sent the nation's smallest team to the Games. A total of six athletes, all men, participate only in athletics, judo, and swimming. The nation's female athletes, however, failed to compete for the first time in its history since its national debut at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. The Barbadian team also included backstroke and medley swimmer Bradley Ally, who competed at his third Olympic games. Sprint hurdler Ryan Brathwaite was appointed by the committee to be the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony.

Barbados left London, however, without winning a single Olympic medal for the third consecutive time. Brathwaite, the nation's Olympic hopeful, nearly missed out of the medal standings, finishing abruptly in fifth place.
