Australia at 1976 Montreal Summer Olympic Games

Australia sent 180 athletes (145 men and 34 women) to the 1976 Montreal Summer Olympics. They competed in 115 events in 20 Olympic sports. Australian athletes have competed in all of the Summer Olympic Games since the games started.

Australia's poor showing with no gold and only a total of 5 medals prompted Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser to set up the Australian Institute of Sports.
