Australia made an application to FIDE for a GM title. FIDE considered the matter and awarded the GM title, is there any difference between China and Australia?

Which 2 GM norms?

I think he may be referring to one or more of Darryl's norms. I think one of the norms either didn't meet a strict reading of the FIDE criteria, or the criteria may have been somewhat ambiguous. At the time, it was pretty common practice for FIDE to accept applications based on borderline norms if a good case could be made (e.g if the 2600 performance was easily reached, but the number of titled players was one short). These days I believe the rules are interpreted more strictly.

Yes puts his April FIDE rating at 2541.
Just a few points short of Rogers' final rating.

So a likely Board 1 for this year's Olympiad?

Just a few points short of Rogers' final rating.

Also higher than Johansen's best ever rating of 2531.

I would think that this is almost a certainty.

FIDE has given word that Zhao's GM title has been approved at the quarterly presidential congress, conditional on rating in the April list (which is likely to be 2541).

I've just got further confirmation from FIDE that all the technical details have now been fulfilled for ZYZ's GM title, but his player card will not be updated until May 3 (60 days after the application date i.e. the objection period) from which he becomes a GM for all practical purposes.
