Record 488 athletes to represent Australia at Tokyo 2020
A record 488 athletes will represent the Australian Team at Tokyo 2020 making it the largest team they have ever sent to an Olympic Games not on home soil.
Due to the IOC’s athlete replacement rules, along with other Team changes, the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) was able to select an additional 16 athletes across 5 sports – Equestrian, Football, Hockey, Judo and Rugby.
The Team features the greatest proportion of women (53.5%) and the largest Indigenous athlete representation (16 athletes) in Australian Olympic history.
