    Rowing

    The rowing heats are on at the Sea Forest Waterway in central Tokyo from 10:00am AEST.

    Australia is competing in the women's double sculls, and the men's and women's quadruple sculls across the morning.

    Archery

    The archery individual ranking round for the women's starts at 10:00am at Yumenoshima Ranking Field, followed by the men's at 2:00pm.

    Brisbane's Alice Ingley is the sole Australian woman competing at Tokyo, her second Olympics having placed 17th in the women's individual archery in Rio.

    Ryan Tyack and Taylor Worth, who were part of Australia's first-ever medal winning-archery team, will hope to repeat their Rio bronze victory in Japan.

    Rounding out the green and gold squad is Adelaide's David Barnes, who made his Olympic debut at Athens 2004 aged 18.

    You can follow the ABC's live blog of the opening ceremony from 8:00pm.

    There will be no fans at the 68,000-seat Olympic Stadium in Tokyo for the opening ceremony due to the resurgence of COVID-19 in Japan.
