Dario Barbosa was a physician and, like his teammate Sebastião Wolf, a member of Club Tiro 4, the most respected shooting club in Porto Alegre. In 1910 he participated in the first international shooting contest in South America, the tournament celebrating the Centenary of Argentine Independence and two years later won a bronze medal at the Pan American Games in Buenos Aires with the Brazilian pistol shooting team. With his team from Rio Grande do Sul Barbosa placed second in the 1915 Brazilian championship before winning a bronze medal in the free pistol team event at the 1920 Antwerpen Olympics.
