German Athletes at the 2016 Summer Olympics

Germany will participate at the 2016 Summer Olympics to be held from August 5 to 21, 2016, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This will be Germany's seventh consecutive appearance at the mega tournament following its unification in 1990.

German Team and Its Participation

It will send 241 competitors to the games who would compete in 21 sports.

The Germans would be competing in a wide array of sports such as archery, athletics, football, handball, swimming, table tennis, weightlifting, wrestling, field hockey, gymnasts, cycling, and many other sports.

Since the start of the modern Games in 1896, Germany has hosted two Summer Olympics Games - 1936 and 1972.

Following the First and Second World Wars, Germany was banned from participating in the tournament during the years 1920, 1924 and 1948.

In 1980, West Germany refused to participate in the Summer Olympics held in Moscow due to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. East Germany boycotted the 1984 Summer Olympics held in Los Angeles in support of the Soviet Union.

In the 2012 Summer Olympics held in London, England, Germany sent 392 competitors to the games who competed in 23 sports. Germany stood sixth on the table bagging a total of 44 medals - 11 gold, 19 silver, and 14 bronze.
