On Tuesday, the Austrian Olympic Committee (ÖOC) announced the final squad for the Olympic Games in Paris. A total of 81 athletes will represent Austria in France. A further place could be added in two days' time. There are certainly some medal hopes in the line-up. The flag bearers have also been decided.

From July 26 to August 11, Red-White-Red will be hunting for medals at the Olympic Games in Paris. 81 athletes will represent Austria in the French capital. The largest team will be the swimming association, with ten athletes. Canoeist Felix Oschmautz and judoka Michaela Polleres will have the honor of carrying the flag. 

Some "hot potatoes"
Anna-Maria Alexandri/Eirini-Marina Alexandri have high hopes of winning medals in synchronized swimming. Another medal hopeful is Victoria Hudson. The javelin thrower wants to impress in her Olympic debut and build on her recent successes. After all, she was crowned European champion in the javelin a few weeks ago. Lukas Weißhaidinger, who won bronze at the last Games in Japan, also wants to go for precious metal again.

There are opportunities to win gold, silver or bronze in equestrian sports and shooting. Michaela Polleres would also like to fight for a medal in her category (70 kg) in the judo competitions. The Austrian triathlon quartet, Tim Wafler in track cycling and Valentin Bontus in kitesurfing also have outsider chances.

Badminton player Collins Valentine Filimon received a quota place and will be the 81st participant at the Olympics. Golfer Sarah Schober is definitely taking part. Surprisingly, swimmer Lena Kreundl also received a starting place in the 200 m medley.

The nomination by the Austrian Olympic Committee in Vienna on Tuesday was the official starting signal for the Olympic preparations, which will be followed by the farewell ceremony on Wednesday evening and the farewell and swearing-in ceremony with Federal President Alexander van der Bellen on Thursday morning.
