2016 Rio Olympics Track and Field Schedule

The 2016 Rio Olympics Track and Field schedule will be held from August 12th through August 21st 2016. The track and field (or athletics schedule) will be held at the Rio Olympic Stadium. The events are split into four sets of events to include: road running events, track and field, and racewalking. The track and field events have been part of the Olympics since the Athens Games in 1896 which were the first of the modern era. Today, no other Summer Olympics event awards more medals with these events granting 141 medals in total with 47 of them being gold. For fans of the Olympics, we have also posted a printable 2016 Rio Olympics schedule, the daily event sked to help with your TV or streaming viewing, and specific event schedules for you to use.

What is the Status of the Russian Track and Field Team for the 2016 Games?

At the time of this writing, the entirety of the Russian athletic team is banned from competing during the 2016 Rio Games. On June 17, 2016, the IAAF voted to unanimously ban the team based on the ongoing Russian doping scandal and failure of the Russian team to completely respond to the directed measures to fix their testing program for banned substances. There is a small door open for “clean” athletes to petition to compete as an individual athlete, so stay tuned to the news!
