Australia will send a strong 35-member swimming team to the Tokyo Games, with many members having a chance to win medals, formed in the recent national team events in Adelaide.
“I am very satisfied with the performance,” Australian swimming coach Rohan Taylor said.
“I have a feeling we have a great team and I’m especially happy with the strength of our substitutions, which is a testament to the great depth of the team,” he added.
Australian strength swimming is seeking to regain its Olympic luster in Tokyo: Swimmers from this continental nation won just ten medals at Rio 2016 and London 2012, while they won in Beijing 2008 with 20.
Many swimmers have Olympic gold options in Japan. They include Kaylee McKeown, Ariarne Titmus and Emma McKeon in the female category and Kyle Chalmers or Zac Stubblety-Cook in the male category.
Of the 35 team members, 21 will go to their first Olympic experience. Instead, it will be Emily Seibom and Kate Campbell in the fourth matches.
