|CANBERRA Air Max 2017 Sale Clearance , Dec. 18 (Xinhua) -- President of the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) John Coates said he believes performances by Australia's Olympic athletes have "bottomed" and results will improve at the 2016 Rio Games, the AOC reported on its website on Wednesday.
The 2013 Benchmark study released by the AOC shows Australia is currently sitting on 34 medals and overall seventh position on the medal tally.
Australia recorded 35 medals in 2011 and 2012 and dropped one more this year. Three years out from Rio the study shows Australia is on eight gold, 19 silver and seven bronze medals.
"Clearly we have bottomed with 34 medals and after hovering around this mark for three years there are serious challenges ahead," Coates said.
"Our intention is to convert many of those silver medals into gold in Rio," Coates said. "That can easily be achieved through our partnership with the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) through the Winning Edge Program."
He said the results from swimming are "particularly pleasing" with 12 medals Air Max 2018 Sale Clearance , three golds and nine silvers. Coates mentioned Swimming Australia's new President, John Bertrand, said Bertrand and his team are determined to get their sport back on top and "I am sure they will reap the rewards in Rio."
Cycling also recorded a very good result with six medals, two gold, two silver and two bronze medals Air Max 1 Sale Clearance , he said.
"Swimming and cycling have won the bulk of the medals and the other sports need to step up as we draw closer to Rio," Chef de Mission Kitty Chiller said. "Hockey is rock solid with two silver medals (men and women) and we have high hopes sailing will continue their outstanding performances from London."
Sailing finished 2013 with one gold compared to three golds and one silver in London in 2012.
"Sailing has set the bar high for Rio with their aim to surpass their London tally," Chiller said. "We are hoping the two new sports in 2016, Rugby 7's and golf will also be amongst the medals. "
The 2013 study indicates two medals for golf one gold and one bronze.
The goal of Winning Edge is to return Australia to the top five on the gold and overall medal tally in Rio.
"Working with the AIS and the ASC is key to our success in Rio. Through Winning Edge we will provide our athletes with the best possible preparation and we will start to see the results in the next two years," Chiller said.
Australia's results have been in decline since the 2008 Beijing Olympics where the country finished with 46 medals. By the 2012 London Games the total had slipped to 35 medals. This compares with 58 medals in Sydney 2000 and 50 medals in Athens in 2004.
The big improvers in 2013 are Brazil Air Max Sale Clearance , the hosts in 2016. They have moved from 17 medals in London to 27. History shows the host nation enjoys a surge in success.
That was the case for Australia in 2000 and Britain in 2012 where they won 65 medals and finished third on the gold medal tally and fourth overall. At this point Team GB has dropped to the fifth on the overall medal tally with 44 medals but can be expected to overcome the post-Games slump and rebound by the time Rio comes around.
Japan is another big improver moving from seven golds in London 2012 to 10 in 2013. With Tokyo chosen to host the 2020 Games,the Japanese Olympic Committee has already set an ambitious goal of winning between 70-80 medals and a third-place target overall for their home Games.
Currently, the United States heads the overall medal tally with 92 medals followed by Russia, 90, China Nike Air Max 2017 Sale Outlet , 67, Germany, 56, Britain, 44 Nike Air Max 2018 Sale Outlet , France, 35, Australia, 34, Japan Nike Air Max 1 Sale Outlet , 31 and Brazil 27. "Like us, the Brazilians, the Japanese and the current top nations are unapologetic when it comes to striving for success on the world stage," Coates said.
JAKARTA， June 14 (Xinhua) -- A senior official at the Transportation ministry said on Tuesday that government would speed up the schedule to commence railway transport project in the nation's easternmost province of Papua to the second half this year from the initial schedule set by the end of next year.
"The government has requested the initial groundbreaking of the project be accelerated to the second half this year，" Prasetyo Boeditjahjanto， Railway Director General at the ministry said here.
The railway transport project in Papua， called Trans-Papua， was designated to start from Sorong， serving the city in Papua province to Manokwari in the neighboring West Papua province.
The initial 390-km railway route from Sorong to Manokwari requires some 8 trillion rupiah (about 598.3 million U.S. dollars) excluding the land compensation cost， Prasetyo said.
However， the railway project in the initial Trans-Papua route was still hindered by land acquisition problem on land hosting 4 kilometers of railway track in the route.

In total the Trans-Papua railway transport would serve 1，550 kilometer of public transport across those Papuan cities.
Some 108.3 trillion rupiah (about 8 billion dollars) of funds were required to finance development of those routes which were expected to be completed no later than 2024.
