  • Sweet Sorrow for Australian Olympic Team - Congratulations Chloe Esposito


    The Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) wishes Olympic gold medallist Chloe Esposito all the very best as she prepares for a new discipline, which sadly rules her out of contention for the Tokyo Olympic Games later this year.

    AOC President John Coates says the Rio modern pentathlon champion continues to put a smile on the face of Australian sports fans with this morning’s announcement that she’s expecting a baby in August.

    “I have no doubt that Chloe’s preparation will be of the highest standard, as we have come to expect.

    “While disappointed our Tokyo team will be missing one of its brightest stars, we are delighted with her news - and we wish her and husband Matt Cooper all the best for their new arrival.

    “Chloe has been a wonderful ambassador for her sport, Australia and the Olympic movement. I am sure we will see her back in Australian colours to recapture the title she won in Rio. “
