London 2012 is fast approaching and a strong team is being assembled by the Australian Olympic Committee to take on the world. Australia will be looking to better the haul of forty-six medals – including fourteen gold- that earnt the team sixth on the medal table in Beijing four years ago.

China  topped the count when they hosted the Games four years ago, while Olympic powerhouses Russia  and the USA  are also expected to return home with a big haul. The host nation historically exceeds all expectations and Great Britain  will be looking to better their fourth placed finish from the Games of the XXIX Olympiad.
