Everything you need to know about Australia's Olympic schedule today including Titmus vs Ledecky

Australia's incredible run in the pool at the Tokyo Olympics is set to continue today with the nation's swimmers having a major chance at a podium finish in eight events.

Day 5 at the Games saw 20-year-old superstar Ariarne Titmus thrash Katie Ledecky in the 200m freestyle final to make it two from two against the American legend.

Titmus will renew her rivalry with Ledeck at 1pm when Australia takes on America in the 4x200m freestyle relay, before the pair go head to head in the 800m freestyle at 8pm.

9.28pm - Mixed 4x100m medley - Australia  

The swimmers set up a huge couple of days in the pool with sprint queen Emma McKeon breaking the Olympic record for the 100m freestyle in her opening heat - an incredible swim where she barely got out of second gear.

McKeon will race Cate Campbell for gold in the event just before midday, with gold medallist Kaylee McKeown back in the pool going for another medal in the 200m backstroke at 9pm.

Zac Subblety-Cook - whose good looks set Twitter alight during his heat - qualified fastest for the 200m breaststroke, while Kyle Chalmers will attempt to become the first Australian to defend his crown as the fastest man in water in the 100m freestyle.

Jack McLoughlin also a chance to win the 800m freestyle. 

The Hockeyroos and Kookaburras, the country's all-conquering men and women's hockey teams, kept their perfect records alive overnight with wins over Japan and New Zealand respectively, while the Boomers held off Italy in the basketball to go to 2-0. 

The results weren't all positive however, with the Olyroos going down to Egypt 2-0 in the football, knocking Australia out of the competition in a hugely disappointing result given their first up win over Argentina and narrow loss to Spain. 

The men's golf kicks off on Thursday morning, while Australia has a bunch of riders ready to go in the BMX.

Jess Fox will look to redeem herself after a disappointing final round to win bronze in the K1 with the C1 canoe slalom late in the afternoon, while the women start their gold medal defence in the rugby 7's against Japan.

The Stingers will hit the water again against another European powerhouse Serbia as they look to build on their shock win over Croatia in the men's waterpolo.

The nation's athletes are a strong chance to topple Wednesday's success of three gold medals with four very much on offer.
