Barbados first competed at the Summer Olympic Games in 1968, and has participated in each Games since then, missing only the 1980 Summer Olympics by participating in the American-led boycott of those games. The country's only Olympic medal to date is a bronze won by sprinter Obadele Thompson in the men's 100 metres at the 2000 Summer Olympics.
