Born in Trinidad and Tobago, Glenroy Gilbert was part of the best 4x100 m relay team in the mid-90s, alongside [Robert Esmie], [Bruny Surin] and [Donovan Bailey]. Gilbert ran in college in the United States for LSU, where he finished second in the 1993 NCAA 100 metres.

Internationally, Gilbert won a gold medal in the 100 at the 1995 Pan American Games, but he won most of his medals in the 4x100 relay.

Gilbert also competed in bobsleigh at the 1994 Winter Olympics, where he finished 15th in two-man and 11th in four-man. After his retirement, Gilbert worked with CBC radio in Ottawa and also coached the Canadian 4x100 m relay team.
