MedalistsEdit

The following South Korean competitors won medals at the Games. In the by discipline sections below, medalists' names are bolded.

CompetitorsEdit

The Korean Olympic Committee (KOC) selected a team of 204 athletes, 103 men and 101 women, to compete in 22 sports; it was the nation's smallest team sent to the Olympics since 1984, just six athletes relatively short of its size.[3] South Korea did not qualify athletes in basketball, rugby sevens, tennis, and triathlon.

ArcheryEdit

South Korean archers qualified each for the men's and women's events after having secured a top eight finish in their respective team recurves at the 2015 World Archery Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark.[4][5]

With a top eight placement at the Worlds, the spots for the three men and three women from South Korea will be determined in two national selection meets by April 2016.[6] The South Korean archery team, led by London 2012 Olympic champion Ki Bo-bae, was announced on April 19, 2016.[7] On August 5, 2016, South Korea's Kim Woo-jin set a world record by scoring 700/720 in the Men's individual & team ranking rounds.[8]

BoxingEdit

South Korea has entered one boxer to compete in the men's bantamweight division into the Olympic competition. Ham Sang-myeong received a spare Olympic berth, as the next highest-ranked boxer, not yet qualified, in the AIBA Pro Boxing (APB) rankings, as France's top boxer Khedafi Djelkhir decided to withdraw from the Games and thereby announce his retirement from the sport.[12]

As a result of their place in the men's team sprint, South Korea has assured its right to enter two riders in both men's sprint and men's keirin. Although South Korea failed to win a quota place in the women's team sprint, they managed to claim a single place in the women's keirin, by virtue of their final individual UCI Olympic rankings in that event.

FencingEdit

South Korean fencers have qualified a full squad each in the men's and women's team épée and women's team sabre by virtue of being the highest ranking team from Asia outside the world's top four in the FIE Olympic Team Rankings.[18][19]

London 2012 Olympians Gu Bon-gil, Kim Jung-hwan, and Jeon Hee-sook, along with 2008 Olympic silver medalist Nam Hyun-hee, had secured their individual spots in the men's sabre and women's foil, respectively, by finishing among the top 14 fencers in the FIE Adjusted Official Rankings. They were joined by four-time Asian men's foil champion Heo Jun as one of the two highest-ranked fencers from Asia outside the world's top eight qualified teams.[20] Other fencers also featured London 2012 sabre champion Kim Ji-yeon and bronze medalist Jung Jin-sun in men's épée.

The fencing team was officially named to the South Korean roster for the Games on June 22, 2016.[21]

ShootingEdit

South Korean shooters have achieved quota places for the following events by virtue of their best finishes at the 2014 and 2015 ISSF World Championships, the 2015 ISSF World Cup series, and Asian Championships, as long as they obtained a minimum qualifying score (MQS) by March 31, 2016.[47] To assure their nomination to the Olympic team, shooters must compete at two separate legs of Olympic Trials: air gun (March 14 to 18) in Naju and small-bore (March 30 to April 10) in Daegu.

A total of 17 shooters (eight men and nine women) were selected to the South Korean roster, with Jin Jong-oh aiming to defend the Olympic title in the men's air pistol at his fourth straight Games. Among the shooters also featured London 2012 champion Kim Jang-mi (women's 25 m pistol) and silver medalist Kim Jong-hyun (men's 50 m rifle 3 positions).

With Jin Jong-oh securing quota places in both men's air and free pistol as a double starter, the South Korean team decided to exchange one of them with an additional spot in the women's 10 m air rifle instead based on performances throughout the qualifying period. The slot was awarded to Park Hae-mi.[48]
