As we move into week two of the Games, Australia has the challenge of quarter-final knockout games in two team sports, the women’s hockey and water polo. The Canoe Sprint competition gets under way and there are medals on the line in Sailing.
There were strong individual performances for the Aussies on the track, diving in the pool and on the golf greens, but unfortunately it was not quite enough for a podium finish.
Athletics kicks off its competition program with three sessions on Day 1. Flagbearer Anna Meares starts her program and popular boxer Shelley Watts has her first bout.
