Four teams from Australia will take on competitors from across the globe, with teams from China and Great Britain among the 30 nations involved in the multi-sport event.

The two Men’s and two Women’s teams from Australia will begin competition on Thursday in a round-robin format, culminating in the finals day on Saturday.
