Saint Kitts and Nevis took part in the 2000 Summer Olympics, which were held in Sydney, Australia, from September 13 to October 1;[1] the country's participation marked its second appearance at the Summer Olympics since its debut at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. The delegation included two track and field athletes: Kim Collins and Valma Bass.[1][2]

Background[edit]

Saint Kitts and Nevis participated in three Olympics between its Olympic debut at the 1996 games in Atlanta, United States, and the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia.[2] Saint Kitts and Nevis made their first appearance at the Olympics in 1996, sending ten athletes.[2][3] Kim Collins previously competed at the 1996 Summer Olympics in both the men's 100 meters and the men's 4 × 100 meters relay.[3][4] Valma Bass previously partook in the 1996 Summer Olympics in the women's 4 × 100 meters relay.[3][5]

The Saint Kitts and Nevis Olympic Committee was first formed on May 27, 1986; the committee gained recognition by the International Olympic Committee in 1993 at a session of the IOC in Monte Carlo, Monaco.[6]
