Throughout the lead up to, and during, the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, our Aussie athletes have been inundated with inspiring messages from audiences watching at home.
A top five position on the Olympic medals table remains a realistic goal for Australia despite falling “well short” of ambitions in Rio, chef de mission Kitty Chiller has declared.
Ryan Gregson has achieved a top-10 finish in the men’s 1500m final while Australia’s 4x400m women’s relay team finished eighth in the last night of competition at the Olympic Stadium.
The last full day of action at the Olympics sees us involved in athletics, canoe sprint, golf, triathlon, diving and modern pentathlon. Medals are on the line across the sports.
