He was born in Maceió, and resides in São Bernardo. Barros represented Brazil at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. He competed in the 4x100 metres relay together with José Carlos Moreira, Vicente de Lima and Sandro Viana. In their qualification heat they placed fourth behind Trinidad and Tobago, Japan and the Netherlands. Their time of 39.01 was the seventh out of sixteen participating nations in the first round and they qualified for the final. There they sprinted to a time of 38.24 seconds, the fourth time after the Jamaican, Trinidad and Japanese teams. He also took part in the 200 metres individual, finishing fifth with a time of 21.15 seconds in his first round heat, which was not enough to qualify for the second round.
His personal best time is 20.47, achieved in February 2008 in São Paulo. He also has 10.22 seconds in the 100 metres, achieved in March 2008 in São Paulo.
In 2009, he was suspended by the IAAF for 2 years for a doping offence involving the drug rh-EPO.
He again represented Brazil at the 2012 Summer Olympics, again in both the 200 m and the 4 × 100 m relay.
De Barros would retroactively be awarded the bronze medal for the 4 × 100 metres relay at the 2008 Summer Olympics following the demotion in 2017 of the Jamaican team for Nesta Carter's failed anti-doping test.
