Individual Olympic Athletes (2000)

Timor-Leste competed at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, which was held from 13 to 29 August 2004. This marked the Summer Olympic debut for the country, although East Timorese athletes had competed as Individual Olympic Athletes in the 2000 Summer Olympics. The delegation included Gil da Cruz Trindade and Agueda Amaral, both of whom were marathoners that qualified via wildcard places as the nation had no athletes that met either the "A" or "B" qualifying standards. Amaral was selected as flag bearer for the opening ceremony. Neither athlete won a medal in their events.


East Timorese athletes have so far achieved qualifying standards in the following athletics events (up to a maximum of 3 athletes in each event at the 'A' Standard, and 1 at the 'B' Standard).[1][2]
