SprintEdit

Sweden has qualified a single boat in men's K-1 200 m for the Games through the 2015 ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships.[11] Meanwhile, two additional boats (women's K-1 200 m and women's K-2 500 m) were awarded to the Swedish squad by virtue of a top two national finish at the 2016 European Qualification Regatta in Duisburg, Germany.[12]

On 25 July 2016, one additional boat was awarded to the Swedish squad in the men's K-2 200 m and one in women's K-1 500 m,[13] as a response to the removal of five boats held by the Russians from the International Canoe Federation due to their previous doping bans and their implications in the "disappearing positive methodology" set out in the McClaren Report on Russia's state-sponsored doping.[14] SOK decided to decline the spot in the men's K-2 200 m, but selected Karin Johansson for women's K-1 500 m.[15]

ShootingEdit

Swedish 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 European Championships or Games, as long as they obtained a minimum qualifying score (MQS) by 31 March 2016.[55]

On 14 November 2015, skeet shooters Stefan Nilsson and Marcus Svensson were among the initial batch of Swedish athletes to assure their selection to the Olympic team. Initially, Sweden secured a quota place in the women's 10 m air rifle, but the Swedish Olympic Committee chose to exchange it with the men's double trap instead based on performances throughout the qualifying period. The slot was awarded to London 2012 silver medalist Håkan Dahlby.[56]
