London 2012 Olympian Taylor Worth headlines a three-man archery team selected to represent Australia in Rio.

Ryan Tyack and Alec Potts join 25-year-old Worth, who'll contest his second Games after impressing before placing ninth as a debutant in London four years ago.

The trio, who together earned Australia three quota qualification places at last year's world championships, were named on the Rio Games team on Tuesday.

They will contest the team and individual events at Rio's famous Sambodromo - venue of the annual Samba Parade - after overcoming a strong selection challenge from three-time Olympian Matt Gray.

At the London Games, Worth upset world No.1 Brady Ellison in the round of 16 before losing a shoot-off in the round of eight at Lord's Cricket Ground.

"Rio will be a completely different Olympic experience for me," Worth said.

"In London I was the sole male competitor.

"Now with a full team it will change the whole experience."

Tyack is the 2014 world indoor champion while Potts, 20, has made the biggest strides since his first world championships, equalling the Australian recurve record at the Shanghai World Cup this year.
