Format changesEdit

On 23 November 2012, the International Shooting Sport Federation instituted new rules to the competition format designed to enhance the sport's appeal to youth, to make it more spectator and media friendly, and to keep the competitions fair and transparent. The most significant change to the rules is the new final format for all Olympic events, where all finalists must start from scratch. Furthermore, all finals feature an elimination stage, until the competition ends up with duels between the two shooters to decide the gold and silver medals. Other ratified changes include decimal scoring for both air rifle and rifle prone, separate sighting and match firing periods, limited use of performance-enhancing rifle clothing and equipment, target throwing distance in skeet shooting, and adjustment of targets in the double trap.[2]

QualificationEdit

The qualification system was similar to that used for previous Games, with a fixed number of quota places divided among the nations whose shooters place well at top-level global and continental championships. As per the guidelines from the International Shooting Sport Federation, qualification commenced with the 2014 ISSF World Shooting Championships in Granada, Spain, which concluded on 19 September 2014, two years before the Olympics.[3][4] Throughout the process, quota places were generally awarded when a shooter earns a gold medal in an ISSF World Cup series or posts a top finish at the ISSF World Championships or the continental championships (Africa, Europe, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas).

Brazil did not qualify through the World Championships, rather its nine places were guaranteed due to it being the host nation.[5]
