Mat Belcher (Sailing) Ash Gentle (Triathlon)


Event: Two Person Dinghy

The most successful Olympic-class helm sailor in Australian history plans to add to that legacy at Tokyo. Belcher and teammate Will Ryan claimed silver in the 470 class at the 2016 Rio Olympics but are both driven to go one better at Tokyo.

Events: Women’s triathlon and mixed relay

Part of Australia’s gold medal-winning mixed relay team at the 2018 Commonweal­th Games, Gentle has been among the best female triathlete­s for several years.

It will be Gentle’s second Olympics and her early selection in the team at the start of the year has provided her the flexibilit­y to train with the Games as her sole focus.
