Description

The British Virgin Islands formed a National Olympic Committee (NOC) in 1980 that was recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 28 May 1982 at the IOC session in Rome. The nation has competed at every Olympic Games since 1984. No athlete from this island has won an Olympic medal. 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 remains the only Winter Olympic competitor from the British Virgin Islands up to 2014, when Peter Crook competed in freestyle skiing halfpipe. The best Summer Olympic performance for this island nation was in the 1992 sailing three-person keelboat, placing 17th of 24 crews.
