Canada at the 2016 Summer Olympics

Canada competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from August 5 to August 21, 2016. Since the nation's debut in 1900, Canadian athletes had appeared in every edition of the Summer Olympic Games, with the exception of the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow because of the United States-led boycott. The chef de mission was Curt Harnett, appointed in April 2016 after Jean-Luc Brassard, the original chef de mission, resigned his position.[2][3]

A total of 314 athletes, 128 men and 186 women, over 27 sports (except handball) represented the country, a stark contrast from 2012 with an increase of 37 athletes.[4] The team also consisted of 98 coaches and 107 support staff (such as doctors and physiotherapists among others).[5] Originally, 312 athletes were named to the team, however two male athletes were added on July 29, 2016 in kayaking, thus bringing the total to 314.[6] Canada qualified five squads in team sports, matching the record high from 1984.[7] Canada's official goal (set by Own the Podium) for these games were at least 19 medals of any colour (an improvement of one or more from 2012), and a top 12 finish in terms of overall medals won.[8] Canada left the games with 22 medals (ranked in the top ten in terms of overall medals), which matched the total from the 1996 Games in Atlanta, the previous high for a non-boycotted games. Canadian athletes were paid for medals earned. Gold medalists earned $20,000; silver medalists were paid $15,000; and bronze medalists $10,000, coming from the Athlete Excellence Fund.[9]

Rosie MacLennan, trampoline gymnast and the country's sole gold medalist in 2012, was named as Canada's flagbearer in the opening ceremony.[1] Swimmer Penny Oleksiak broke the country's Olympic record for most medals (4) won by a single Canadian athlete in any Summer Olympic Games, as well as becoming the youngest ever Canadian gold medalist.[10] At the end of the Games, she was appointed as the flagbearer for the team at the closing ceremony, becoming Canada's youngest flag-bearer in Olympic history.[11]

Athletics (track and field)Edit

Canadian athletes achieved qualifying standards in the following athletics events (up to a maximum of 3 athletes in each event):[18] The team was selected based on the results of the 2016 Canadian Olympic Track & Field Trials. The Canadian road events have standards that are different from the IAAF and are listed below.[19] On July 11, a team of 65 athletes (28 men and 37 women) was announced, marking the largest ever track and field team Canada has sent to the Olympics.[20] Athletes Oluwasegun Makinde, Marissa Kurtimah and Micha Powell who were named as relay alternates did not compete in any race.

CyclingEdit

Canada qualified a total of 19 cyclists (7 men and 12 women). The full team was officially announced on June 29, 2016.[39]

RoadEdit

Canadian riders qualified for the following quota places in the men's and women's Olympic road race (3 per gender) by virtue of their top 5 national ranking in the 2015 UCI America Tour (for men) and top 12 in the UCI World Ranking (for women).[40][41]

TrackEdit

A total of eight Canadian track cyclists qualified. Following the completion of the 2016 UCI Track Cycling World Championships, Canadian riders accumulated spots in the women's team sprint and team pursuit, as well as the women's omnium. As a result of their place in the women's team sprint, Canada won the right to enter two riders in both women's sprint and women's keirin. Therefore, Canada were permitted to enter the maximum team size of 7 women. Although Canada failed to win a quota place in the men's team sprint, they managed to secure a single berth in the men's keirin, by virtue of their final individual UCI Olympic ranking in that event.[42]

SailingEdit

Canadian sailors qualified one boat in each of the following classes through the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships, the individual fleet Worlds, and North American qualifying regattas.[86]

Olympic veterans Luke Ramsay and Nikola Girke (Nacra 17), as well as the skiff crew Danielle Boyd and Erin Rafuse (49erFX), were the first Canadian sailors to be selected for Rio on March 8, 2016, while the entire nation's Olympic sailing squad will be named by June 2016.[87] Laser Radial sailor Brenda Bowskill was named to the team on May 9, 2016, and was followed by Finn yachtsman Tom Ramshaw a week later and 470 crew brothers Graeme and Jacob Saunders in the first week of June 2016.[88][89][90] The team was officially unveiled on July 4, 2016.[91]

Citing the sailors' performances and downward trend throughout the qualifying period, the Canadian Yachting Association decided to reject quota places earned in both windsurfing and 49er classes.[92]
