M5's Olympic Triple Act

Updated: Apr 20, 2023

On the Road to Tokyo 2020

 


There is something special and unique about all athletes M5 represents. Our Olympic trio of Gracie Elvin (road cycling), Dan Fox (Paralympic swimming) and Brittany Broben (diving) are no exception. Competing in very different sports and at different stages of their careers, they all have a story to tell as they enter the final 18 months of preparation before Tokyo.


London Olympic silver medallist Brittany Broben is making a sensational comeback to the world diving scene after shoulder injury forced her to relinquish her spot on the Australian team for Rio 2016. During rebab she turned to Triathlon, with only slim hopes of competing at elite level again. To her delight she has made a full recovery, returning to elite diving and is now in strong contention for 2020 Olympic selection.

Paralympian Dan Fox was born with an intellectual disability and began swimming as a toddler. He is now aiming for selection at his third Olympic games, with podium finishes in London (silver) and Rio (bronze) in the 200 metre Freestyle event and more recently a bronze medal at the Gold Coast 2018. The Brisbane-based athlete is well known for his great sense of humour, down to earth manner and candid honesty.


Road cyclist Gracie Elvin, is on a mission to compete at her second Olympic Games. She has considerable experience to draw on including representation at the Rio Olympics 2016, two Commonwealth Games campaigns (Glasgow 2014 and Gold Coast 2018) and domestic and international team racing, currently with UCI Women's team Mitchelton-Scott. Gracie is also a passionate advocate for women's sport, playing a key role in launching the Cyclists' Alliance, which provides support and leadership for female cyclists.
