Medal-winning archer among Coasters in action on day five
MULTI-SPORT: A selection of Sunshine Coast athletes is due to compete on day five of the Games.
Mapleton archer Ryan Tyack is due to shoot in round one, and possibly round two, of the individual event on Thursday morning.
He was a star for the Australian men's team which won bronze on day one at Rio.
His mother/coach Lynnette believed he could be in with a genuine chance.
"After looking at his shooting in the teams event...if he was to shoot like that again in the individual event then he's certainly going to be a big player,” she told the Daily earlier in the week.
Meanwhile, Jodie Kenny and the Hockeyroos are due to clash with India at midnight on Thursday, after losing their first two Pool B matches. They then clash with Argentina on Friday morning.
Leah Neale is due to compete in the heats of the 4x200m freestyle relay in the early hours of Thursday morning, with the final to be held in Thursday afternoon.
She said there was some trepidation about whether she would get to swim in a final, if Australia qualifies.
"Yeah it does (concern) me a little bit but I'm aiming to be in the final,” she said.
She was fourth fastest in the 200m freestyle at the national trials.
There is a chance fellow Coaster Brittany Elmslie, who was part of the gold-medal winning 4x100m freestyle relay team, could be included in the 200m squad.
Taylor McKeown is scheduled to swim in the heats of the 200m breaststroke early on Thursday morning with semi-finals on Thursday afternoon.
She has already competed in the 100m breaststroke.
