Share This Story



Russell Mark and Michael Diamond will compete at their sixth Olympics after being included in a 17-member Australian shooting team for the London Games.

The team announced Thursday features three Olympic gold medalists, an 18-year-old and the first father-daughter combination to compete for Australia.

Diamond is a two-time Olympic gold medallist and Mark won gold at Atlanta 1996. They will equal the achievements of equestrian Andrew Hoy, sailor Colin Beashel and rower James Tomkins as Australians who have competed at six Summer Games.
