I have only attended one Olympics. It happened to be our own Sydney 2000.. the Millennium Games. What a life experience it was. Scenes like the amazing liting of the Olympic flame, the Opening and Closing ceremonies.. the latter I attended. I had goose bumps when 40,000 of us sang We Are Australian. Advance Australia Fair has never done that to me. These memories will live with me all my life.

Chloe was interviewed about a month ago and no mention of not competing then. Below are our two Modern Pentathlon reps. Ed Fernon & Marina Carrier. Where are you Chloe?

To my knowledge Australia has never had an Olympic Decathlon medalist? As alluded to in above post we have not one but two competing in Tokyo.. Cedric Dubler, 26, and and 2018 World Junior Champion. Ashley Moloney, 21. Here is Moloney's story.

As Australia's 473 athletes attempt to, as always, acquit themselves with distinction, what sports will hold most of your attention in Tokyo. I will be glued to the goggle box for every race by our Dolphins, our track cyclists, rowers/canoists, sailors, hockey and sevens rugby teams. I will also be following our dual Decathletes.. Cedric Dubler and Ash Moloney as they guts their way thru nine gruelling sports. Plus the talented trio Nicola McDermott (high jump) Kurtis Marschall (pole vault) and distance runner Stewart McSweyn as he takes on the strong African nations. Can our world class three-day Equestrian Eventing team again medal and give living legend Andrew Hoy a fitting send off if the 8-time Olympian and '92, 96 and Sydney 2000 gold medalist calls it quits after Tokyo.

Probably the last Olympics for Safwan Khalil in the Tae Kwon Do, unlikely to get a medal though.

Look forward to Jack Marton making his debut as well

I wish the play-by commentator would know a little about the sport.

I know nothing about baseball/softball really but I know what a closer does. It is her job to come in and close the match near the end of the match.
