The team won nine golds, 10 silvers and 10 bronzes at the 2016 Rio Olympics in swimming events with Ellie Cole and Brendan Hall regaining their titles from London 2012.

“Paralympics Australia is delighted to welcome Speedo back into the Paralympic family,” Paralympics Australia’s Chief Executive, Lynne Anderson, said.

“Their support and commitment in the lead-up to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games is a huge boost for para-swimmers aiming for glory against the world’s best.”

Australia has been fifth overall in every Games since 2000, when they topped the medal table on home soil in Sydney.

They also had their best showing in the pool in London in 2012, finishing second behind China and ahead of hosts Great Britain.
