Description

Antigua and Barbuda formed a National Olympic Committee (NOC) in 1965 with the objective of participating in the 1966 British Commonwealth Games that year. After being refused recognition in 1975, because its statutes did not conform to International Olympic Committee (IOC) requirements, provisional recognition was granted in 1976 at the IOC session in Innsbruck. Full recognition followed on 19 July of the same year at the IOC session in Montréal and Antigua and Barbuda competed at the 1976 Olympic Games. It has participated at all subsequent Summer Games except for 1980, but has not yet competed at the Olympic Winter Games. Antigua and Barbuda has not yet won a medal at the Olympics, the top performance by one of its athletes likely coming in 1984 when Lester Benjamin placed 15th in the qualifying round of the long jump in athletics.
