Ferns of New
for the gold
wrestling showing since 1970. Even in athletics,
beset by controversy, Australia s yielding of eight
gold medals was the most modest return since
Edmonton in 1978.
Medal counts, Australia s chef de mission Steve
Moneghetti consistently said over the previous 11
days, aren t the be all and end all, just numbers on
a piece of paper . Yet under the federal government s
aspirational post-London funding policy, they re
just about everything.
It is why the sporting teams that bombed out
in Glasgow will be under the microscope in the
"We re pretty happy with the overall performance
of athletes generally, but certainly there are some
sports in an evaluation sense will look back and
certainly dive into a bit of detail," said Australian
Institute of Sport chief executive Matt Favier.
"With some sports we ll be having conversations
with them around their performance here, and
what does that indicate for us as a nation with
regards to Rio."
Favier, whose agency is charged with divvying
up $120 million in high performance funding to
sports, says Australia s overall medal count fell at
the mid point of their expectations; the gold medal
haul at the lower to mid range.
He was buoyed by Australia s performance in
shooting, track cycling, boxing and the improvement
since London in swimming, and not shocked by
overall demotion at the hands of England,
"It s not unexpected," Favier said. "We always
imagined that on the back of London, England and
certainly Scotland would be a lot stronger than
they have been in recent times. It s been one of
the most competitive Games of recent times.
"We re confident that for 2018, and on the back
of further progress under the Winning Edge strat-
egy, that we ll reclaim the No 1 position and we
certainly expect those sports that have performed
below expectations here we ll work very closely
with them to address it.
"We ve also got to be careful we don t start jump-
ing at shadows here. In some cases there are some
injuries that you do need to consider. There are
some considerations, however, about what went
wrong and we will certainly evaluate that with
The medal count will not be the only subject of
post-Glasgow talks with sports. Other issues that
confronted the Australian team here over the past
fortnight---notably the Eric Hollingsworth fiasco in
athletics and squash player Zac Alexander s last-
minute exile from the team---will also be on the
"We would want some assurances that that won t
happen again," Favier said of the spat between
Hollingsworth and Sally Pearson that led to the
track and field head coach s sacking.
"Governance cuts across all sports and certainly
in the case around athletics in particular, and what
has happened over the last week, is an example of
a thing that we need to avoid in the future."
The next round of high performance funding---
the lifeblood of amateur sports not propped up by
huge television deals---will not be finalised until
June 2015. Its allocation will depend principally on
prospects for the next Olympics, and the report
card from the Commonwealth Games will be key
in determining where the money is heading.
Favier admits, though, that simply throwing more
cash at sports that performed well in Glasgow, and
stripping money off those that didn t, is not nec-
essarily the way forward.
"I think some sports would rightly say Well,
we don t have the right amount of resources to
be able to generate a better performance than
we ve done ," he said. "And we need to acknowledge
that as well."
