The British Virgin Islands were first represented by a single competitor at the Sarajevo 1984 Winter Olympic Games.
Later that year they sent a team of nine to the Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles. Their two sailing crews were the first into action and included brothers Keith and Peter BARKER.
At the Seoul 1988 Olympic Games, 17-year-old Matthew ARNEBORG finished 29th in a field of 45 in the men's windsurfing. It remains their best individual performance to date.
At the Beijing 2008 Games, British Virgin Islands sent two athletes. Flagbearer Tahesia HARRIGAN was the first woman to compete when she ran in the 100m.
To date, the British Virgin Islands have taken part in only athletics and sailing, and have yet to win a medal.
