During the month of October 2018, the Barbados Olympic Association (BOA) worked diligently to formulate a revived Barbados Athletes’ Commission. Today we are a seven-member group of past and current national athletes from various sports whose collective goal is to be a voice for our nation’s athletes. We serve as a link between athletes and the BOA, to represent and communicate the needs of national athletes. My Team 246 has been created by athletes for athletes. An initiative by the Barbados Athletes’ Commission with the goal of increasing support to our national athletes by providing the necessary tools to allow them to learn, connect, share, and grow!
Who We Are
The Athletes Commission is an established forum for all elite athletes who have represented Barbados at international multi-sport competitions such as the Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Pan American Games and the Central American and Caribbean Games and by extension our national athletes.
