And they say there's no country for old men? Pssshhht. Two team members have already represented Australia at an Olympic Games. Two are previous World Championships medallists, four represented Australia at the 2006 Commonwealth Games and all but Philippe competed at the 2007 World Championships.
Read more about the team and their expectations here. Offord will compete all-around, the only member of the team to do so. Rizzo and Sellathurai, as event specialists, will aim to repeat their 2006 individual apparatus successes; Simpson and Jefferis themselves will specialise on just two apparatus each.
The men's team for the Japan Cup was also named this weekend. Congratulations to Mitchell Morgans and Michael Merceica for their selection.
