Owen Wright claims Aussie’s first ever Olympic medal in surfing.
It’s day 5 of the Tokyo Olympics and Australia is primed for a shot for at least four gold medals which could be a massive day in our history.
Ariarne Titmus is a massive chance in the 200m freestyle after setting the fastest time in the world at the Australian trials and qualifying fastest for today’s final — and will be right next to Katie Ledecky in the next round of their rivalry.
The Aussie men’s 4x 200m relay will also look to medal after qualifying second fastest for the final and adding Kyle Chalmers to the mix.
The rowing finals get underway as well where our men’s and women’s foursomes are chasing gold.
Our road cycling time trialists Grace Brown and two-time World Champion Rohan Dennis also race the clock for gold today.
