Our best prospect is Hooper who you would all likely know of. He's currently ranked #2 in the world and has won multiple international tournaments into the lead up to the games.

I haven't heard much about our womens rep Naomi but she won the national championship this year and made it to the 3rd round in the wolrd championship.

From my searches it looks as though the draw hasn't been set for the games yet but the schedule is set for all the fights and can be found at,

i'll post any more news, draws and what not here when I find them.

hooper doesnt seem to have been real active this year. anyone know how many fights he's had this year, and quality of opponents?

his results seem to be getting worse.....just sayin.

i wish him all the best. weve nevr won a gold in boxing. it would be outstanding to win one. the 1st aussie to win one is an instant millionaire, and raises the profile of boxing in oz in the process.

remember the whoo ha when spike cheney fought in the final?

How realistic is it that anyone of the boxers can medal.

Does Hooper have a genuine chance to medal?

A few overseas experts have been saying Jai Opetaia (81-91kg) could be a smokey medal chance for Australia.

Not too many have been high on Damien Hooper (75-81kg).

Hooper speaks about leaving the Aus training camp


Hooper back in the ring for a swing at gold


Inked up and ready to rumble.
Gold medal shot Damien Hooper is back from his Queensland sabbatical hungrier than ever to make Australian boxing history at the London Olympic Games.
Having been ejected for what national coach Don Abnett described as ''a couple of behavioural breaches'', Hooper has spoken for the first time since returning to the national set-up at the AIS in Canberra.
With the words ''Super Hooper'' tattooed along his forearms and sporting a new sleeve of ink to proudly display to the world his indigenous heritage, the 20-year-old has revealed he needed to clear his head from the pressure of being labelled the first Australian to win an Olympic boxing title.
''If I didn't go home at that time, it would've got worse,'' Hooper said.
''I really wanted to go back home and told the coaches that's what I wanted.
''I was getting all cooped up in my room and wanted to escape and see my family.
''That made me feel a lot better and a lot hungrier for what I'm doing right now.'''
Hooper was alleged to have clashed with coaches and teammates during a national camp - a claim both Hooper and Abnett refused to elaborate on.
While what exactly happened to spark his exit remains murky and may never be fully revealed, the upside of his trip back to Toowoomba, and subsequent training in Brisbane with his personal coach Garth Williams, is abundantly clear.
Hooper's punches are crisp.
His work ethic is strong.
And his desire to bring back a medal - not just for himself, not just for his coaches, country or close-knit family - but an entire race of people, is unquestioned.
Three-day old tattoos stretching up his right arm, from his wrist to his shoulder, showcase his immense pride as an indigenous Australian.
He admits the sparring sessions with the fresh ink will ''bloody hurt''.
But he wanted it done in time so when he stepped into the ring in London, the entire world would know his story.
''It means everything to me - I'm so proud and respectful of my background,'' he said. ''That's why I wanted to get the tattoos finished so I can show it off at the Olympics.''
The national under-81-kilogram champion is the No.3-ranked amateur in his division in the world.
Hooper qualified for the Olympics by making the quarter-finals of last year's world championships before he lost to the eventual champion.
Abnett hasn't taken it easy upon his return. He's been cracking the whip, putting him through the same brutal routine as the rest of the squad. Morning fitness regimens, often of a dozen 400m sprints, are followed by gruelling afternoon sparring sessions in the ring.
''It was just a couple of little behavioural breaches,'' Abnett said.
''It was nothing to get really upset about, he needed a bit of time at home to clear his head.
''He's switched on and hopefully he can finish the rest of his preparation with the right frame of mind.''

He's been fighting constantly And how are his results getting worse, he's been winning tournaments overseas and he lost in the Worlds to the eventual gold medallist by only a couple of points. I predict a bronze for Hooper.

Are you talking about real volleyball or the concocted version on the sand
to titilate the " preverts ".
