Description

Trinidad and Tobago established a working committee in 1946 which was first provisionally and later fully recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Trinidad and Tobago has competed continuously at the Olympic Games since its début in 1948, competing only as Trinidad through 1956 and in 1964. In 1960, it had one cyclist, one track & field athlete, and two yachtsmen competing in a combined team with Jamaica and Barbados under the name of the West Indies Federation, termed the Antilles by the Rome organizing committee. Though the West Indies Federation won two medals, no Trinidad athlete was a medal winner in 1960. Trinidad and Tobago competed in the Olympic Winter Games for the first time in 1994 at Lillehammer, and competed again in 1998 and 2002. Trinidad and Tobago has won 18 Olympic medals, 14 in track & field athletics, three in weightlifting, and one in swimming. Its first gold medal occurred in 1976 when Hasely Crawford won the men’s 100 metres in track & field athletics. In 2012 Keshorn Walcott became the second gold medalist for Trinidad and Tobago after winning the men’s javelin throw. While the most medals have been won by the sprinter Ato Boldon with one silver and three bronze in 1996 and 2000.
