Australia has high hopes of adding to the solitary gold medal that it has won so far at the 2012 Olympic Games going into day seven, with strong chances in both the rowing and at the velodrome. The World Champion team of Christopher Morgan, James McRae, Karsten Forsterling and Daniel Noonan  will be going for gold in the Men’s Quadruple Sculls at Eton Dorney after producing the third fastest time in the semi-finals.

Anna Meares  will be looking to make up for the disappointment of missing out on gold in the Women’s Team Sprint when she contests the Women’s Keiren, an event in which she has been crowned World Champion in both of the past two years. We have another strong medal prospect at the Olympic Park Velodrome, with Australia  looking to better the silver medal that it collected at the World Championships in April behind Great Britain in the Men's Team Pursuit.

21 year-old archer Taylor Worth  is a realistic hope of collecting a medal after defeating world number one Brady Ellison in their round of 16 match of the Men’s Individual archery competition.

The penultimate day of swimming action at the Olympic Park Aquatics Centre sees Australia represented in two finals, with Meagan Nay  lining up in the Women’s 200m Backstroke final and Eamon Sullivan  contesting the Men’s 50m Freestyle final.
