Basketball at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was held from 6 to 21 August 2016. The preliminary and knockout matches for men were played inside the Carioca Arena 1 in Olympic Park which seats up to 16,000 spectators, and the matches for women were played in Youth Arena. This marked the first time that the men's and women's Olympic tournaments were played in multiple/separate venues. Hosting country, Brazil, failed to make it to the quarterfinals of both the men's and women's division after being eliminated from the group stage. Three countries in both categories took all of the medals: United States, Serbia and Spain.
