Australia has a proud Olympic history and in Rio, our athletes will join the long and distinguished list of Australian Olympians carrying the hopes and expectations of our sports loving nation. The AOC expects to send approximately 470 Athletes to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and we are aiming for a top five finish on the Gold Medal table. For these athletes it will be the pinnacle of many years of hard work and training to represent their country on the world’s stage. It will cost over $20 million to prepare and send our Team to Rio. The AOC does not receive Federal Government funding and relies on the generous support of Team Partners and fundraising events to send our Teams to the Olympic Games. This is your opportunity to share in and support our athletes’ aspirations and help foster the enduring pride of a nation in the pursuit of excellence. All funds raised going directly to prepare and send the Australian Olympic Team to Rio 2016.
