Two new sports have been included in the schedule for Rio. Golf makes its return to the Olympics for the first time since 1904, and rugby sevens will be played for the first time (although full-side rugby was played at the Olympics from 1900 to 1924).

The Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) is expecting to win 13 gold medals, almost twice as many as their total from London 2012, and 37 medals in total. However that total would still be a smaller haul than Australia’s efforts in each of the four Olympics prior to London.

Australia is expected to be most successful in the pool, with Mitch Larkin, Emily Seebhom and the Campbell sisters all considered genuine gold medal chances. However they will face stiff competition from an American team featuring the like of Katie Ledecky, Ryan Lochte and Missy Franklin, as well as international medal threats like Sun Yang (China), Katinka Hosszu (Hungary) and Florent Manaudou (France).

Cycling, sailing and hockey are the other sports Australia is most likely to take home gold in, while success is far less likely on the athletics track.
