|Summer Olympics appearances (overview)|
Namibia competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 5 to 21 August 2016. This was the nation's seventh consecutive appearance at the Summer Olympics.
Namibian National Olympic Committee sent a team of 10 athletes, 4 men and 6 women, to compete in track and field, boxing, road cycling, mountain biking, and shooting at the Olympics, matching the nation's roster size with Beijing 2008. The Namibian roster featured four returning Olympians; two of them attended their third straight Games, including marathon runner Beata Naigambo and Africa's top-seeded trap shooter Gaby Ahrens. Meanwhile, amateur light welterweight boxer Jonas Junias, the youngest of the team (aged 22), was chosen to be Namibia's flag bearer in the opening ceremony.
Namibia, however, failed to win a single Olympic medal since the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, where sprinter Frankie Fredericks collected two silvers each in both the men's 100 and 200 metres.
Namibian athletes have so far achieved qualifying standards in the following athletics events (up to a maximum of 3 athletes in each event):
|Mynhardt Kawanivi||Men's marathon||2:20:45||70|
|Alina Armas||Women's marathon||2:44:20||75|
