FundingEdit

In May 2014 Australian Sports Minister Peter Dutton announced that 650 Australian athletes identified as medal prospects would receive funding directly from a newly designed program that reallocated A$1.6 million from the Direct Athlete Support program.[3][4]

In the lead up to the Rio Olympics, the Australian Sports Commission advised that it had invested A$376.7 million to high performance sports in the Rio cycle 2012-2016. This amount includes funding to Winter Olympics and non-Olympic sports.[5][6]

ArcheryEdit

Three Australian archers qualified for the men's events after having secured a top eight finish in the team recurve at the 2015 World Archery Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark.[7] Another Australian archer has been added to the squad by finishing in the top two of the women's individual recurve at the Oceania Qualification Tournament in Nuku'alofa, Tonga.[8]

The men's team (Potts, Tyack, and Worth) was officially named to the Australian roster for the Games on 31 May 2016, with Alice Ingley joining them on her Olympic debut in the women's individual archery one month later.[9][10]

Athletics (track and field)Edit

Australian athletes have so far achieved qualifying standards in the following athletics events (up to a maximum of 3 athletes in each event).[11][12] The team selected its athletes with a specific qualifying standard based on the results at the 2016 Australian Championships and Olympic Trials (March 31 to April 3) in Sydney.[13]

On 8 January 2016, the Australian Olympic Committee had selected the two long-distance runners (one each in both men's and women's 10,000 m) and three race walkers, including three-time Olympic medallist Jared Tallent, in the men's 50 km.[14] Twenty-seven track and field athletes were announced on 3 April 2016, following the completion of the Australian Championships.[15] Six marathon runners (three per gender) were named to the Australian team on 12 May 2016, and were followed by three 20 km race walkers and one long-distance runner at the first of week of June 2016.[16][17]

On 29 June 2016, sprint hurdler and reigning Olympic champion Sally Pearson withdrew from the Games due to a hamstring injury, with middle-distance runner Melissa Duncan following her with the same incident two weeks later.[18]

On 30 July 2016, sprinter Josh Clarke withdrew from the Games after failing to fully recover from a hamstring injury that he suffered in the early months of the year.[19]

Monica Brennan was selected for the women's 4 × 400 m relay team, but did not run in either heat or final.[20]

BadmintonEdit

Australia has qualified a total of six badminton players for each of the following events into the Olympic tournament based on the BWF World Rankings as of 5 May 2016: one entry each in the men's and women's singles, as well as the pair each in the men's and mixed doubles through the Oceania continental representation system.[21]

With the option to select a maximum of two events under the continental representation system, the Australian Olympic Committee had decided to accept invitations for the men's doubles (Chau & Serasinghe) and mixed doubles (Middleton & Choo) instead. As there were no other Oceania places taken up in the women's singles, Taiwanese-born Chen Hsuan-yu (world no. 74) qualified directly on the World Rankings.[22][23]

GolfEdit

Australia has entered four golfers (two per gender) into the Olympic tournament for the first time since 1904. Scott Hend (world no. 81), Marcus Fraser (world no. 86), and Korean-born Minjee Lee (world no. 14) and Su-Hyun Oh (world no. 41) qualified directly among the top 60 eligible players for their respective individual events based on the IGF World Rankings as of 11 July 2016.[73]

Adam Scott, seventh in the men's world rankings, announced in April 2016 that he would not compete in Rio, choosing instead to focus on the 2016 PGA Tour.[74] Marc Leishman, who was in line to be selected following Scott's withdrawal announced on 5 May 2016 that he would not play in Rio as his wife Audrey is recovering from toxic shock syndrome.[75]

RowingEdit

Australia has qualified a total of eight boats for each of the following rowing classes into the Olympic regatta. Majority of the rowing crews had confirmed Olympic places for their boats at the 2015 FISA World Championships in Lac d'Aiguebelette, France, while a men's single sculls rower had added one more boat to the Australian roster as a result of his top three finish at the 2016 European & Final Qualification Regatta in Lucerne, Switzerland.

A total of 20 rowers (13 men and 7 women) were officially named to the Australian roster for the Games on July 7, 2016, with Kerry Hore leading the rowing team and racing with the women's quadruple sculls crew at her fourth Olympics.[83] Due to the withdrawal of the Russian Woman's eight, due to doping sanctions, the Australian women's eight was included in the 2016 Summer Olympics.

On July 26, 2016, the women's eight berth was awarded to the Australian rowing team, as a response to the removal of four boats held by the Russians from FISA due to their previous doping bans and their implications in the "disappearing positive methodology" set out in the McClaren Report on Russia's state-sponsored doping.[84]

SailingEdit

Australian sailors have qualified one boat in each of the following classes through the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships, the individual fleet Worlds, and Oceanian qualifying regattas.[91] On 4 December 2015, the Australian Olympic Committee had announced the first three double-handed crews to compete at the Games, including defending champions Iain Jensen and Nathan Outteridge (49er) and Mathew Belcher (470).[92] Laser sailor Tom Burton was named to the Australian team in March 2016, and was followed by two female sailing crews (Smith & Ryan in 470, and Stoddart in Laser Radial) two months later. Finn yachtsman Jake Lilley rounded out the selection at the end of May 2016.[93]

Australian Sailing has decided to reject quota places earned by the sailors in the women's RS:X and 49erFX classes due to its performance standards set for the Games.[94]

ShootingEdit

Australian shooters have achieved quota places for the following events by virtue of their best finishes at the 2014 and 2015 ISSF World Championships, the 2015 ISSF World Cup series, and Oceanian Championships, as long as they have obtained a minimum qualifying score (MQS) by March 31, 2016.[95][96] They must compete in two selection meets of the Australia Cup in Sydney to attain their benchmark scores and assure their selection to the Olympic team.

The Australian Olympic Committee confirmed a roster of sixteen shooters to the Olympic team in a selection event on April 8, 2016, with Belarussian-born Lalita Yauhleuskaya remarkably going to her sixth Olympics, reigning World champion Warren Potent to his fifth, and pistol ace Daniel Repacholi to his fourth.[97]

Olympic trap veterans Michael Diamond and Adam Vella were initially selected to the team, but both were challenged by an appeal from rookie Mitchell Iles against his non-selection. Following criminal charges related to the use of firearms and drunk-driving, Diamond lost his bid to compete at seventh Olympics on June 30, 2016.[98] With Diamond ruled ineligible for the Games, Shooting Australia had decided to officially nominate Vella and Iles, who won his appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) one week earlier.[99]

SwimmingEdit

Australian swimmers have so far achieved qualifying standards in the following events (up to a maximum of 2 swimmers in each event at the Olympic Qualifying Time (OQT), and potentially 1 at the Olympic Selection Time (OST)):[100][101] To assure their nomination to the Olympic team, swimmers must finish in the top two of each individual pool events under both the benchmark standard and the FINA A-cut at the 2016 Australian Championships and Olympic Trials (April 7 to 14) in Adelaide.

A total of 34 swimmers (15 men and 19 women) were named to the Australian team for the Olympics at the end of the Australian Championships, featuring 2015 World backstroke double champions Mitch Larkin and Emily Seebohm, sisters Bronte and Cate Campbell, siblings David and Emma McKeon, London 2012 medallists Alicia Coutts and Bronte Barratt, and freestyle aces Cameron McEvoy (sprint) and Mack Horton (long-distance).[102] Two months later, London 2012 silver medallist James Magnussen, along with his teammates James Roberts and rookie Matthew Abood were added to the team, as FINA confirmed Australia's quota spot in the men's 4 × 100 m freestyle relay, finishing among the top four nations, not yet qualified, in the World Ranking List as of May 31, 2016.[103]

WeightliftingEdit

Australia has qualified one male and one female weightlifter for the Rio Olympics by virtue of a top five national finish (for men) and top four (for women), respectively, at the 2016 Oceania Championships.[121] The team must allocate these places to individual athletes by June 20, 2016.

Commonwealth Games runner-up Simplice Ribouem (men's 94 kg) and Tia-Clair Toomey (women's 58 kg) were nominated to the Olympic roster, based on their performances at the Oceanian Championships.[122]

WrestlingEdit

Australia has qualified four wrestlers for each of the following weight classes into the Olympic competition, as a result of their semifinal triumphs at the 2016 African & Oceania Qualification Tournament.[123][124] The entire wrestling squad was announced on 12 April 2016, with Sahit Prizreni remarkably going to his third Olympics after he represented Albania in 2004 and 2008.[125]

On July 15, 2016, the Australian Olympic Committee decided to revoke the license owned by Vinod Kumar and his nomination to the Olympic team, following an anti-doping violation.[126]

Key:

  • VT – Victory by Fall.
  • VB – Victory by injury.
  • PP – Decision by Points – the loser with technical points.
  • PO – Decision by Points – the loser without technical points.
  • ST – Technical superiority – the loser without technical points and a margin of victory of at least 8 (Greco-Roman) or 10 (freestyle) points.
