Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin
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.
