Australia is known as a country that loves its sport, and the Australian Institute of Sport stands as both a testament to that love and a supporter of it. The AIS, as it is commonly known, has its headquarters in the Canberra suburb of Bruce, and features world class facilities used to train top Australian athletes.
The AIS was set up in 1981 after Australia suffered the embarrassment of failing to win a single gold medal at the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal. The institute is well-funded and believed to be the reason behind Australia's sporting success.
