Athletics (track and field)Edit

U.S. athletes have so far achieved qualifying standards in the following athletics events (up to a maximum of 3 athletes in each event):[4][5] The team will be selected based on the results of the 2016 United States Olympic Trials (July 1 to 10).

Six marathon runners (three per gender) were the first set of U.S. track and field athletes being selected for the Games by virtue of their top three finish at the Olympic Team Trials in Los Angeles on February 13, 2016. One week later in Santee, California, three-time Olympian John Nunn joined them to the team by winning the men's 50 km walk trials under the entry standard (4:06:00).[6]

Two female race walkers (Michta-Coffey & Melville) were added to the U.S. track and field team by finishing among the top two within the qualifying standard (1:36:00) in the 20 km walk at the first day of the Olympic Team Trials in Salem, Oregon. Meanwhile, Nunn won the men's race (1:25:37), but failed to achieve the entry standard of 1:24:00.[7]

Following the completion of the Olympic Trials, a total of 126 athletes (61 men and 65 women) were named to the U.S. track and field team for the Games, with Bernard Lagat running in the long-distance at his fifth Olympics and hurdler Sydney McLaughlin establishing herself as the youngest ever (aged 16) in four decades. Apart from Lagat and McLaughlin, the U.S. team also featured six Olympic champions: sprinters Justin Gatlin (2004), LaShawn Merritt (2008), and Allyson Felix (2012), long jumper Brittney Reese, decathlete and world record holder Ashton Eaton, and triple jumper Christian Taylor.[8] Hammer throwers Kibwe Johnson, Conor McCullough, and Rudy Winkler were added to the team on July 14, after the IAAF extended invitations to fill out the event.[9]

# – The U.S. team initially finished 8th in their heat during the morning session following a dropped baton pass. Upon appeal it was ruled that a Brazilian runner interfered with the U.S. runner holding the baton and the team was given a second-chance during the evening session to run the relay alone and qualify on time.

BoxingEdit

Eight U.S. boxers have been entered to compete in each of the following weight classes into the Olympic tournament. Carlos Balderas was the only U.S. boxer finishing among the top two of his respective division in the World Series of Boxing.[17][18] Meanwhile, four U.S. boxers (Hernandez, Stevenson, Conwell, & Mayer) had claimed their Olympic spots at the 2016 American Qualification Tournament in Buenos Aires, Argentina.[19]

London 2012 middleweight champion Claressa Shields was the U.S. female boxer to upgrade her Olympic spot with a quarterfinal victory at the World Championships in Astana, Kazakhstan.[20] Antonio Vargas and Gary Antuanne Russell were the only Americans to secure additional places on the boxing team at the 2016 AIBA World Qualifying Tournament in Baku, Azerbaijan.[21]

Boxers must also compete at the Olympic Trials in Reno, Nevada to assure their selection on the U.S. team for the Games.[17]

CyclingEdit

RoadEdit

U.S. riders qualified for the following quota places in the men's and women's Olympic road race by virtue of their top 5 final national ranking in the 2015 UCI America Tour (for men) and top 22 in the 2016 UCI World Ranking (for women).[25] As no men qualified automatically through a podium finish at a UCI World Tour event or a top-15 ranking in the UCI World Ranking, USA Cycling filled the quota spots via selection committee on June 23, 2016.[26] The selection committee also nominated all four women athletes to the Games directly after all opportunities for automatic qualification had passed.[27]

TrackEdit

Following the completion of the 2016 UCI Track Cycling World Championships, U.S. riders have accumulated spots in the women's team pursuit, as well as both the men's and women's omnium. Although United States failed to earn a place in either men's or women's team sprint, they managed to secure an outright berth in the men's keirin, by virtue of their final individual UCI Olympic ranking in that event.

Two-time Olympic silver medalist Sarah Hammer had automatically earned a selection to the U.S. track cycling team in the women's omnium with a superb runner-up finish at the 2016 UCI World Championships in London.[28] The full U.S. Olympic track cycling squad was named on March 18, 2016.[29]

FencingEdit

U.S. fencers have qualified a full squad each in the men's team foil and women's team sabre by virtue of their top 4 national finish in the FIE Olympic Team Rankings, while the women's épée team has claimed the spot as the highest ranking team from America outside the world's top four.[47]

In February 2016, Mariel Zagunis, a double Olympic champion (2004 and 2008), and Ibtihaj Muhammad, the first U.S. athlete to compete at the Games in a hijab, were the first two fencers to earn selection to the U.S. Olympic team by finishing in the top two of the national women's sabre team rankings. They were eventually joined by men's foil (Massialas, Meinhardt, & Chamley-Watson) and women's épée (Holmes & Hurley sisters) few weeks later. Sabre fencers Eli Dershwitz and Daryl Homer, along with London 2012 Olympians Lee Kiefer and Nzingha Prescod, both in women's foil, had claimed their spots on the U.S. team by finishing among the top 14 in the FIE Adjusted Official Rankings, while Jason Pryor did so as the top-ranked men's épée fencer coming from the America zone.[48]

The full U.S. Olympic team was announced on April 11, 2016 at the USA Fencing Division I National Championships in Richmond, Virginia.[49]

SailingEdit

U.S. sailors have qualified one boat in each of the following classes through the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships, the individual fleet Worlds, and other qualifying regattas.[80] The U.S. Olympic team will be determined based on the sailors' finishing positions, that is, their lowest series score from their respective class in selected major international regattas.[81]

On February 15, 2016, U.S. Sailing Olympic team had announced their selection for the 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 to represent the country at the Rio regatta, based on the results at the ISAF World Cup meet and World Championships, both held in Florida.[82] Meanwhile, the remaining single-handed sailors (Pascual, Buckingham, Paine, Lepert, & Railey), along with the 470 crews, had claimed their Olympic spots at the European Championships and Princess Sofia Trophy Regatta.[83]

ShootingEdit

U.S. shooters have qualified for the Games by virtue of their finishes at the 2014 and 2015 ISSF World Championships, 2015 ISSF World Cup series, and designated selection competitions through the Olympic Point System, an opportunity to earn at least one medal in a given tournament and accumulate points within the threshold score (25 for rifle & pistol and 30 for shotgun).[84] The remaining shooters must be determined by the Olympic Team Selection trials to secure their spots in each event, as long as they obtained a minimum qualifying score (MQS) by March 31, 2016.[85]

On September 17, 2015, Team USA had announced the first six shooters to compete at the Games, including three-time Olympic medalist Matthew Emmons (2004) in rifle shooting, five-time Olympian Glenn Eller (2008) in men's double trap, and defending Olympic champion Vincent Hancock (2008 & 2012) in men's skeet.[86] The remaining shooters were named to the U.S. team at three separate meets of the Olympic Team Trials: small-bore (April 1 to 8), shotgun (May 16 to 25), and air gun (June 3 to 5).

SwimmingEdit

U.S. swimmers have so far achieved qualifying standards in the following events (up to a maximum of 2 swimmers in each event at the Olympic Qualifying Time (OQT), and potentially 1 at the Olympic Selection Time (OST)):[87][88] To assure their selection to the U.S. team, swimmers must attain a top two finish in each individual pool events under the Olympic qualifying time at the 2016 Olympic Trials (June 26 to July 3) in Omaha, Nebraska.

A total of 47 swimmers (25 men and 22 women) were named to the U.S. Olympic team at the end of the trials, with the most decorated Olympian Michael Phelps emerging as the first ever male American to compete at his fifth Games, long-distance ace Jordan Wilimovsky becoming the first to double in pool and open water, and Anthony Ervin making history as the oldest male to swim in an individual event since 1904. Notable swimmers also featured 11-time medalist Ryan Lochte, world record holder Katie Ledecky, and reigning Olympic champions Missy Franklin, Dana Vollmer, and Allison Schmitt.[89]

On August 11, 2016, Phelps set another historic record as the first ever swimmer to earn four consecutive gold medals in the men's 200 m individual medley.[90] Ledecky's final medal total (four golds, one silver) is the most decorated single-Olympics performance by a U.S. female athlete in terms of gold medals, topping Missy Franklin (2012; four golds, 1 bronze), Simone Biles (2016; four golds, 1 bronze), and Amy Van Dyken (1996; four golds).[91]
