Spain at the 2016 Summer Olympics

Spain, represented by the Spanish Olympic Committee (COE), competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from August 5 to 21, 2016. Since the nation's official debut in 1920, Spanish athletes have appeared in every edition of the Summer Olympic Games except for two; the 1936 Summer Olympics in Nazi Germany, and the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, as a protest against the Soviet invasion of Hungary. The Spanish Olympic Committee sent a total of 306 athletes, 163 men and 143 women, to compete in 25 sports.

In December 2015, the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation had announced the first four sailors to compete at the Rio regatta: four-time Olympian Iván Pastor, 2012 Olympic champions Marina Alabau in women's RS:X and Támara Echegoyen in the inaugural 49erFX, along with her partner and former 470 crew Berta Betanzos.[45] Laser sailor Joaquín Blanco, along with the 470 and Nacra 17 crews, had claimed their Olympic spots at the ISAF World Cup meet in Hyères, France, while skiff duo Diego Botín and Iago López rounded out the Spanish roster at the Delta Lloyd Regatta on May 27, 2016, following a selection controversy.[46][47]

Laser Radial sailor and London 2012 Olympian Alicia Cebrián was the last Spaniard to join the sailing crew for the Games at the Kiel Week Regatta in Germany on June 24, 2016.[48]
