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.
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.
An outstanding heat in the pool has put modern pentathlete Chloe Esposito into seventh position overall coming in to the final afternoon of competition.
As we near the end of the Games Australia is looking strong for a couple of medals on Day 14 with prospects in athletics, BMX at least. We also have a thrilling men’s basketball game to thrill us.
