Already swimmer Emma McKeon sits comfortably in the company of two exalted Olympians. On Sunday she gets a chance to take a seat at the head of the table.

McKeon joins Ian Thorpe and Leisel Jones as Australians with nine career Olympic medals after bagging gold and bronze in the 200m backstroke and mixed medley relay respectively on Saturday.

Five consecutive finals remain on Sunday to close out Tokyo's swim program.

And Australian swimmers are genuine shots in three of them, with McKeon and Cate Campbell in the 50m freestyle followed by men's and women's 4x100m medley relays.

SUNDAY

Golf starts the day at 8.30am with Cameron Smith (11th) and Marc Leishman (49th) hoping for a brighter day.

The Andrew Hoy-led equestrians turn their attention to cross-country from 8.45am while shooting and also athletics get busy early on, too.

There's also a full program of athletics which stretches into the evening. It starts with the women's hammer throw at 10.10am, includes men's 400m rounds.

SWIMMING

And the 27-year-old is expected to surpass them on Sunday when the gold medal favourite contests the 50m freestyle at 11.37am. She set an Olympic record in Saturday's semi-final to be quickest qualifier for the dash. Cate Campbell also swims for Australia.

McKeon is also expected to be in the women's 4x100m medley relay final at 12.45pm.
