It will be important for us to have a team in the best possible condition so we can get the best out of our athletes and we have to make sure that we are getting the best performance out of them.
“Team members Scott Morrison and Ben Collins said the focus would be on training.
They said the team would be looking to get a first-timer as close to the Olympics as possible.
They would have to be trained by someone who is qualified, but Mr Morrison admitted they had to get some help from the Olympic Association and the International Olympic Committee to get the job done.”
I think the focus on nutrition and sports performance is really important for athletes,” he said.
Mr Morrison said the athletes were expected to be able to play in four-man teams and that the focus was on sports performances and nutrition.”
In terms of the physical performance, I think the athletes will be able go into the competition with a healthy body,” he added.”
But it’s also about sports performance in terms of physical fitness and it’s about how you perform and the intensity of the exercise that you do.
“He said there would be opportunities for participants to compete in a variety, such as canoeing, rowing, diving, sailing and even skiing.”
You can compete in the rowing event or the sailing event or you can compete as a ski jumper and you can also compete as an athlete in the diving event,” Mr Mitchell said.
Team members will be taking part in an indoor-based swimming event as well.
The first Olympic swimmer to swim at the Australian Games will be 22-year-old Australian swimmer Taylor Lumb and her fellow swimmer Ben Collins will be joining her.
Mr Collins said they would also be taking on a challenge.”
My main goal is to be the first Australian swimter to compete at the Olympic Olympics,” he told ABC News.”
The fact that we can be part of that is a really great thing for the sport.
“If we can do that, that will be huge for our sport, and for our country.”
The team is set to be in Perth on Friday to start training.
