Qualification

The qualification system is similar to that used for previous Games, with a fixed number of quota places divided among the nations whose shooters place well at the top-level global and continental championships. As per the guidelines from the International Shooting Sport Federation, qualification commences with the 2014 ISSF World Shooting Championships in Granada, Spain, which is scheduled to end on 19 September, less than two years left before the Olympics.[2][3] Throughout the process, quota places are generally awarded when a shooter earns a gold medal at the 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 spots through the World Championships, rather its places were guaranteed due to it being the host nation. Nine quota places, however, are reserved to the host nation.[4]
