Australia

Australia is the reigning Paralympic gold medalist, having defeated Canada at the 2012 Paralympic Games. With their heavy-hitting combo of Ryley Batt and Chris Bond, the Australians pack a major punch. Top teams like Canada and Sweden, however, will be gunning for the Aussies in the hopes of improving their own seeding leading in to the World Championships.
