Matthew Dellavedova began at the AIS in 2007 where he spent three years, making his debut for the Boomers along the way. He moved to St Mary’s College in the USA, helped Australia reclaim the Oceania Championship in 2011 and was selected to play for Australia in the Olympic Test Event.
He went on to make his Olympic debut at the London 2012 Games. With Australia losing their opening two preliminary matches to Brazil and Spain, they went on to defeat China, hosts Great Britain and Russia to set up a quarter-final match against the USA. The Australians went down 119-86 to the eventual gold medallists to finish seventh.
