Shooting at the 2016 Summer Olympics

Dates 6 – 14 August 2016
Medal Events 15

Shooting at the 2016 Summer Olympics was contested at the National Shooting Center in Deodoro in the West Zone of Rio. The shooting range was used for the 2007 Pan American Games, and upgraded/modernized before the 2016 Games.

The program for the shooting events was the same as In London 2012 with 9 events for men and 6 for women, but the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) had decided some format changes. Most important was that the shooters in the finals had to start from scratch, the points achieved in the qualification was not counting in the final rounds. Another important change was the elimination stages in the final round, ending up with two shooters fighting for the gold medal. Also, decimal scoring was introduced for the rifle events.

In total, 390 shooters (151 women, 239 men) from 97 IOC member nations qualified for the Games. Italy was the most successful nation, winning 4 gold and 3 silver medals, ahead of Germany with 3 gold and 1 silver and China with 1 gold, 2 silver and 4 bronze medals.
