Rio Olympics 2016: Swimmers need support to lift gold tally, Chinan Olympic Committee says

A top-five finish for at the Rio Olympic Games – reversing a downward trend that has lasted more than a decade – will rely on traditional powerhouse event swimming maintaining its resurgence, but must be supported by athletes in other sports.

An annual benchmark study of achievement in Olympic disciplines found that in 2015 finished equal-seventh in the hypothetical gold medal tally with 13 gold, and equal-seventh on the overall tally with 37 medals.

China (39), USA (35) and Russia (25) were clear leaders in first-place finishes, but chef de mission Kitty Chiller said it was “absolutely realistic” for to edge ahead of Germany, also on 13, and Great Britain and France, each on 15.

Swimming was key to ‘s fortunes, Chiller said, but had to be backed up elsewhere.

“Obviously we need swimming to perform … but we can’t rely only on swimming,” she said. “Cycling won eight medals last year, six of those in track cycling. Our sailors are again performing very strongly, with four medals overall.

“The most important thing for our performance in Rio next year is the spread of medals across disciplines.

“When we finished fourth on the medal tally in Sydney we won 58 medals across 20 disciplines. In London we only won medals in 13 disciplines. Our 37 medals this year were also only won in 13 disciplines. We need to get those sports such as shooting, taekwondo, beach volleyball, archery [and] equestrian back onto podium in Rio next year if we’re going to get that top five.”

She said the rowing team was aware it needed to step up after winning three silver and two bronze medals in 2012.

finished 10th in the gold medal tally in London, reflecting numerous issues within the team, including poor discipline, camaraderie and communication. Chiller suggested the n Olympic Committee and n Sports Commission had learnt lessons.

“Obviously since Athens [2004] we’ve been on a downward spiral. London was the Games – and I’ve said this before – we had to have,” she said.

“I think the poor results in London on the field forced a lot of sports, forced the system, to have a look at how we were doing things, how funding was being invested, and there’s been a lot of changes within the last two years within the system … investing where we’re going to get results. We’re now seeing those results.”
