The Netherlands competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, from 5 to 21 August 2016. Since the nation's official debut in 1900, Dutch athletes had competed at every edition of the Summer Olympic Games in the modern era, with the exception of the sparsely attended 1904 Summer Olympics in St. Louis and 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, which the Netherlands boycotted because of the Soviet invasion of Hungary.

Medalists[edit]

Competitors[edit]

Archery[edit]

The Netherlands qualified three archers into the men's individual and team events after having secured a top eight finish in the team recurve event at the 2015 World Archery Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark.[2][3]

Sjef van den Berg was the first Dutch archer, who has been qualified for Rio 2016 by virtue of his good results in the last tournaments.[4] Mitch Dielemans and Rick van der Ven were the other two archers, who have been qualified for Rio after their good performances.

Mountain biking[edit]

Dutch mountain bikers qualified for two men's quota places into the Olympic cross-country race, as a result of the nation's sixth-place finish in the UCI Olympic Ranking List of May 25, 2016. Rudi van Houts was the first mountain biker, who met the criteria set by the NOC*NSF being selected to the Dutch cycling squad by virtue of his top ten finish at the 2015 European Mountain Bike Championships in Chies d'Alpago, Italy [17]

The Dutch NOC*NSF decided to refuse the second quota place, while there was not an other mountain biker, who met the national criteria. As a result of this, Van Houts was the only mountain biker to compete at the Games.

Originally, Anne Terpstra finished in eleventh place at the 2016 European Mountain Bike Championships, which was not enough to qualify for Rio 2016, while she did not manage to have a top 10 finish at a European Championships or a World Championships during the qualification period. However, the UCI decided to disqualify the Russian mountain biker Ekateryna Anoshina, who finished in eighth place. After the disqualification, Terpstra finished in tenth place and was qualified for Rio 2016.[18]

(*) Despite his disqualification (his horse refused twice to follow his commands) in the first round of the individual qualification, Vrieling will compete in the second and third round of the qualification, so he is able to compete in the team competition, which is the sum of the best three results in respectively qualification round 2 (Final Round A) and qualification round 3 (Final Round B). However, Vrieling is unable to secure a spot for the individual final rounds. To make matters worse, Vrieling has been disqualified too in the second round of the qualifiers, while his horse still refuses his commands.

(**) Gerco Schröder and his horse London is the first reserve for the Dutch jumping squad. He lives outside the Olympic Village during the Games, while he is not a member of the Dutch Olympic Team.

Fencing[edit]

Following the completion of the Grand Prix finals, Netherlands has entered one fencer into the Olympic competition. 2012 Olympian Bas Verwijlen had claimed a spot in the men's épée, as one of the top two individual fencers from Europe outside the world's top eight qualified teams in the FIE Adjusted Official Rankings.[23]
