The AOC intends to send a full team estimated to be around 470 athletes to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. All of the relevant documentation regarding selection for the 2016 Australian Olympic Team will be available from this area of the AOC website.
The AOC Athletes' Commission supports the A.S.P.I.R.E values adopted as the Australian Olympic Team value statement, and enshrined in the Team Agreement, signed by all athletes participating at an Olympic Games.
Once an Olympian - Always an Olympian. Never Past - Never Former. This phrase captures the spirit of the Olympians Clubs established in each state and territory to bring together Olympians in Australia.
