Will the men from the Commonwealth – Jarod Poort (Australia), Kane Radford (New Zealand), and Richard Weinberger (Canada) all face each other again at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games in Copacabana Beach?

Time will tell.

Of the 53 countries of the Commonwealth, it looks like Australia, Canada, Malaysia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Great Britain will have representative athletes in the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim while Bangladesh, Botswana, Cameroon, Ghana, India, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia will have to wait for future Olympics.
