Description

The British Virgin Islands formed a National Olympic Committee (NOC) in 1980, which was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 28 May 1982, at the IOC session in Roma. The nation has competed at every Olympic Games since 1984.

No athlete from this island has won an Olympic medal yet. The two best Summer Olympic performances for this island nation happened at Tokyo 2020, when Kyron McMaster finished 4th in the men’s 400 metres hurdles, and Chantel Malone finished 12th in the women’s long jump.

Strangely, the first Olympic participation for British Virgin Islands was in 1984 at Sarajevo in the Olympic Winter Games, when Erroll Fraser, a New Yorker who had dual citizenship, competed in speed skating. He was the only Winter Olympic competitor from the British Virgin Islands until 2014, when Peter Crook competed in freestyle skiing halfpipe, placing 27th.
