Here’s how to check if you are eligible to compete for the Australian team in Rio de Janeiro.
There are two ways to do it: If you’re not eligible, you’ll need to register at the website.
If you are, you can apply online.
If it doesn’t work out, you may need to call the sport’s office to ask.
You may need a passport to travel to Rio, as there are strict rules in place for athletes in the Olympics.
If your passport isn’t valid you will need to show a passport from the country where you are competing.
If the rules are strict, you might need to apply in person, which can be a hassle.
The Australian Olympic Committee will contact you to make sure you’re on the right track.
