Shooting[edit]

Barbara Engleder giving an interview at the Clothing of the German olympic team.

German shooters have achieved quota places for the following events by virtue of their best finishes at the 2014 and 2015 ISSF World Shooting Championships, the 2015 ISSF World Cup series, and European Championships or Games, as long as they obtained a minimum qualifying standard (MQS) by March 31, 2016.[72] The rifle and pistol shooting team was announced at the Munich leg of the ISSF World Cup series on May 24, 2016, featuring European Games champion Henri Junghänel, three-time Olympian Barbara Engleder, and Beijing 2008 Olympic bronze medalist Christian Reitz.[73] Clay target shooters Andreas Löw and two-time Olympian Christine Wenzel were named to the German shooting roster on May 30, 2016, while London 2012 skeet shooter Ralf Buchheim and trap specialist Jana Beckmann completed the nation's shooting lineup at the Baku leg of the ISSF World Cup on June 24, 2016.[74]

With a double starter (owned by Engleder) securing quota places in two women's rifle events, the German team decided to exchange one of them with the women's 25 m pistol instead based on performances throughout the qualifying period. The slot was awarded to European Games bronze medalist Monika Karsch.[75]

Swimming[edit]

German 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)):[76][77] To assure their selection to the Olympic team, swimmers must finish first or second under the federation's standards in their respective events at the German Olympic Trials (May 5 to 8) in Berlin, and then confirm their places at another selection meet: any leg of the Mare Nostrum tour or the German Open (exactly two months after the trials).

The German Swimming Federation (DSV) selected the first batch of swimmers based on their intermediate results at the Olympic Trials and Mare Nostrum Tour, while the remaining batch rounded out the swimming roster for the Olympics through the German Open. All in all, a total of 27 swimmers (16 men and 11 women) were named to the German team for the Games on July 12, 2016, including two-time world record holder Paul Biedermann in middle-distance freestyle, 2015 Worlds champion Marco Koch (200 m breaststroke), and freestyle sprinter Dorothea Brandt, who returned from a 12-year comeback to her second Games.[78][79]

Tennis[edit]

Germany has entered eight tennis players (three men, five women) into the Olympic tournament. Alexander Zverev (world no. 38) and Philipp Kohlschreiber (world no. 26) qualified directly for the men's singles as two of the top 56 eligible players in the ATP World Rankings, while Angelique Kerber (world no. 4), Andrea Petkovic (world no. 33), Annika Beck (world no. 41), and Laura Siegemund (world no. 42) did so for the women's singles based on their WTA World Rankings as of June 6, 2016. Jamaican-born Dustin Brown and Jan-Lennard Struff had also claimed two of six ITF Olympic men's singles places to join Zverev and Kohlschreiber, as Germany's top-ranked tennis players outside of direct qualifying position.

Having been directly entered to the singles, Siegemund also opted to play with her partner Anna-Lena Grönefeld in the women's doubles.[84][85]

On July 30, 2016, Zverev announced his withdrawal from the Games due to physical problems.[86]

Weightlifting[edit]

German weightlifters have qualified four men's quota places for the Rio Olympics based on their combined team standing by points at the 2014 and 2015 IWF World Championships. A single women's Olympic spot had been added to the German roster by virtue of a top six national finish at the 2016 European Championships.[89] The team must allocate these places to individual athletes by June 20, 2016.

The weightlifting team was named to the Olympic roster on July 2, 2016, with Almir Velagic and Jürgen Spieß remarkably going to their second Olympics.[13][90]
