The men's trap at the 2016 Olympic Games took place on 7–8 August 2016 at the National Shooting Center.


The event was won by Croatian Josip Glasnović.

The medals were presented by Danka Barteková, IOC member, Slovakia and Olegario Vázquez Raña, President of the International Shooting Sport Federation.

Competition format

The event consisted of two rounds: a qualifier and a final. In the qualifier, each shooter fired 5 sets of 25 targets in trap shooting, with 10 targets being thrown to the left, 10 to the right, and 5 straight-away in each set. The shooters could take two shots at each target.

The top 6 shooters in the qualifying round moved on to the final round. There, they fired one additional round of 15 targets, where only one shot could be taken at each target. The total score from these 15 targets was used to determine final ranking. Ties are broken using a shoot-off; additional shots are fired one at a time until there is no longer a tie.


Prior to this competition, the existing world and Olympic records were as follows.
