Pistol shooter Lalita Yauleuskaya will make her sixth Olympic Games appearance (fourth for Australia) at Rio 2016. The former Belarussian pistol shooter automatically qualified for Rio after winning one of the selection events in a benchmark score. Her qualification score of 585 would put her well in contention for a medal in Rio.
Making her Olympic debut in 1996 for Belarus, she won a bronze medal in the 25m air pistol at the Sydney 2000 Games. Becoming an Australian citizen in 2001, she represented Australia at Athens 2004 where she claimed 21st and 10th in the 10m and 25m air pistol events. Four years later in Beijing she claimed 14th and 18th in the same events.
She secured silver for her adopted country at the 2010 World Championship before making her fifth Games appearance in London where she finished 40th (10m) and 17th (25m).
Yauleuskaya made her first Commonwealth Games appearance in 2002 where she won three gold medals for Australia. In total she has won seven gold, a silver and two bronze medals at Manchester 2002, Melbourne 2006, Delhi 2010 and Glasgow 2014.
