In September 2019, Australia was the first team to qualify for the Olympics, and is the most accomplished basketball nation yet to earn an Olympic men’s medal. It finished fourth in 1988, 1996, 2000 and 2016, going winless in eight games with a medal at stake. In 2019, Australia had its best-ever world championship finish of fourth, losing two games with a medal on the line.
