U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters

CANBERRA Womens Aaron Altherr Jersey , Dec. 16 (Xinhua) -- Australia's Olympic movement is confident it can rebound from the disastrous London Olympics campaign in 2012 by winning almost twice as many gold medals at the 2016 Rio Games.

A benchmark study, released by Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) on Wednesday, has tipped Australia to secure 13 gold medals at the Rio Olympic Games next year Womens Tommy Joseph Jersey , almost double its dismal haul of seven gold in London.

Australia will creep back up to seventh in the Games' final gold medal tally if the study, which is based on recent results in major international competitions, is proved accurate.

London 2012 marked Australia's worst performance at the Olympics Womens Rhys Hoskins Jersey , in terms of gold medals won, since Barcelona in 1992.

Previously, Australia's green and gold brigade had made steady ground up the ranks over the past two decades Womens Nick Williams Jersey , finishing fourth at both its home Games in Sydney in 2000 and Athens four years later.

The AOC predictions had Australia winning gold in Brazil in swimming (seven), cycling (three), rowing (one) Womens Aaron Nola Jersey , sailing (one) and men's hockey (one).

"Overall we've had a better year, the gold medal tally is a tremendous improvement and the signs are good for Rio," Kitty Chiller Womens Maikel Franco Jersey , chef de mission of the 2016 Australian Olympic Team, said in a statement on Wednesday.

"We will need to move into the 40s in Rio to achieve our goals. The three superpowers (China, the United States and Russia) are way out in front but the next five nations are close."

Australia is a relatively small country with a population of just over 23 million people yet has a proud history at the Olympics where it has traditionally punched above its weight for years.

Chiller said while the AOC expected to improve its gold haul in Rio Womens Mike Schmidt Jersey , the nation's overall medal tally would remain much the same. It is expected to win 14 silver and 10 bronze which, if true, will only boost its tally up to 37 Pat Neshek Authentic Jersey , two more than London 2012.

Chiller believed the goal was "realistic" as Australia's dependency on its traditional Olympic goldmine, swimming, had eased slightly.

The AOC study determined China (97 medals and 39 gold) as the country most likely to reign supreme in Rio Carlos Santana Authentic Jersey , followed by the United States (84 and 35) and Russia (69 and 25).

LONDON, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- The Royal Navy's aircraft carrier Illustrious said a final farewell Wednesday as it sailed out of Portsmouth for the last time on a journey to a breaker's yard in Turkey.

Onlookers gave the aircraft carrier, affectionately known as Lusty, three cheers as she left the harbor, ending a 32-year career that saw her journey around 1.7 million km around the world.

Former sailors who served on the warship were among the crowd gathered at Portsmouth's old harbor to give the ship one more three cheers as she was towed away into the English Channel.

The Ministry of Defense (MOD) had hoped Illustrious could be preserved as a visitor attraction, but with no realistic projects emerging, the mighty warship was sold for over 2.5 million U.S.dollars.

HMS Illustrious took part in a range of operations until 2014. It is one of the Invincible Class being replaced by the new Queen Elizabeth Class (QEC) aircraft carriers, the largest warships ever built for the Royal Navy.

A spokesman for the MOD said: "Following a two-year open competition seeking to retain part or all of the ship for heritage purposes in the UK, no viable bids were received. Illustrious will be now recycled, as were her sister ships Invincible and Ark Royal, in Turkey by the company Leyal Ship Recycling."

Defense Secretary Michael Fallon said: "Over three decades Illustrious set the highest standards for service that the Royal Navy will continue with HMS Queen Elizabeth when she arrives into Portsmouth next year."

"Backed by a rising defence budget, our new aircraft carriers will lead a growing Royal Navy as Britain steps up to defend our country and our interests," Fallon added.

SEOUL, Dec. 2 (Xinhua) -- Three main opposition parties of South Korea have agreed to vote on a bill to impeach embattled President Park Geun-hye next Friday, after handing in the impeachment motion on Friday.

Floor leaders of the biggest opposition Minjoo Party, minor oppositions People's Party and the Justice Party met on Friday to discuss a way to let President Park resign after the president threw the ball of decision on her fate in parliamentary court.

The opposition bloc agreed to propose the impeachment motion on Friday and vote on the bill on Dec. 9.

The impeachment proposal requires a half support of the 300-seat National Assembly. Passing the motion must have the two-thirds ayes from the unicameral assembly.

As there are 172 opposition and independent lawmakers, at least 28 legislators of the ruling Saenuri Party must be secured to pass the impeachment motion through the parliament.

Up to 50 lawmakers of the anti-Park faction in the ruling party had agreed to impeach President Park, but the figure reportedly declined to an undefined number after Park's national address on Tuesday.

During her third public speech since the scandal involving herself emerged in October, Park said she would step down from the presidency if the governing and opposition parties find a way to ensure a stable transfer of power while minimizing confusion and vacuum in state affairs.

After the presidential speech, the ruling party's pro-Park faction loyal to President Park sought to stop impeachment efforts, while opposition parties denounced the address as a ploy to block impeachment.

Opposition lawmakers were originally supposed to put forward the impeachment motion on Thursday and vote on it on Friday.

The Saenuri Party has adopted a party line of letting President Park stand down in a gradual and orderly manner, demanding Park volunta.
