Former Stanford University athlete and five-time Olympian (the first four times for the United States) Jackie Edwards participated in the Olympics on behalf of the Bahamas in women's long jump. On 18 August, Edwards was placed in the second qualifying heat with 20 other people, including American Brittney Reese and Russian and eventual silver medalist Tatiana Lebedeva, who were the heat's leaders. However, Edwards did not receive a mark and, thus, did not score or rank in her heat. She was one of three athletes to receive no mark during the qualification round (the others were Slovakia's
and India's Anju Bobby George).
The Slovak team featured 17 returning Olympians, including skeet shooter Danka Barteková, who won the bronze in London four years earlier, and experienced race walker and 2015 world champion Matej Tóth, who entered his fourth consecutive Games as a top medal favorite in the 50 km walk. The only medalist returning from the previous Games to compete in Rio de Janeiro, Barteková was nominated by the committee to carry the Slovak flag at the opening ceremony. Other notable Slovak athletes included pro mountain biker Peter Sagan, twins Dana and
