Australia

History

Australia made its Summer Olympic debut at the first games in 1896. The nation has made an appearance at all the games though competed in a combined team with New Zealand known as Australasia during the 1908 and 1912 games. They have hosted the games twice; in Melbourne 1956 and Sydney 2000. Australia usually sends one of the largest teams to the Summer Olympics, with over 400 athletes participating at each edition since 1996. Those athletes take part in most of the sports on the program with the largest teams appearing in athletics, cycling, rowing and swimming along with various team sports.

The nation has won around 500 medals in its history, making it one of the most successful countries to compete. This is also quite notable given Australia’s lower population relative to the other most successful nations. With the exception of the 1904 games Australia has medaled at every single Olympics it has participated in. Swimming is a huge source of Australia’s success, accounting for 188 medals. It is also the sport of Australia’s most successful athletes including Ian Thorpe and Liesel Jones whom have won nine medals each. Australia has also had success in athletics, cycling and rowing, winning 40 or more medals in each sport.
