Australia enjoys an outstanding Olympic history.

The heroic achievements of our athletes at every Olympic Games since 1896 are a source of pride for all Australians.

The Australian Olympic Team is the embodiment of our nation's hopes, dreams and desires.

The Team links the faces and names of past and present athletes across the boundaries of time and distance.

The Australian Olympic Movement promotes to the youth of Australia values which are not bounded by place, creed or time. Values such as respect, aspiration and team work.

The Olympic Games provide Australia with the opportunity to compete against the world's best in a competition that promotes a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play.

As proud custodian of the Olympic Movement in Australia the AOC is committed to promoting the Olympic ideals and values to all through sport.
