CyclingEdit

TrackEdit

Following the completion of the 2016 UCI Track Cycling World Championships, Chinese riders have accumulated spots in both men's and women's team pursuit, and women's team sprint, as well as the women's omnium. As a result of their place in the women's team sprint, China has won the right to enter two riders in both women's sprint and men's keirin. China failed to win a quota place in the men's team sprint, but earned a single place in the men's sprint by virtue of his final individual UCI Olympic rankings in that event.

The full track cycling team, highlighted by Worlds sprint champion Zhong Tianshi, was named as part of the official team announcement for the Games on July 18, 2016.[23]

Modern pentathlonEdit

China has qualified a total of four modern pentathletes for the following events at the Games. London 2012 silver medalist Cao Zhongrong, fifth-place finalist Chen Qian, and rookies Su Haihang, and Liang Wanxia had claimed their Olympic spots at the 2015 Asia & Oceania Championships.[50] Guo Jianli and Zhang Xiaonan became the third Chinese athlete in their respective events to qualify for Rio, as a result of their world ranking at the end of May 2016. With the rookies failing to guarantee their selection at the 2016 World Championships, the choice of four modern pentathletes going to the Games was determined by the NOC before the team was named on June 15; in the event, the Chinese team had decided to keep their Olympic veterans instead, along with Guo and Zhang.[51]
