Best Answer

Bill Roycroft.

Roycroft was 61 years and 131 days old when he competed in individual and team eventing (equestrian) at the 1976 Summer Games in Montreal, winning a bronze medal in the team competition.

Obviously, not only is he the oldest Australian to compete in the Olympics but the oldest Australian to win a medal in the Olympics.
