Olympic champion Esposito (AUS) celebrates birth of first child
The reigning Olympic Modern Pentathlon champion, Chloe Esposito of Australia, is celebrating another defining landmark in her life – the birth of her first child.
Rio 2016 gold medallist Esposito (AUS), 28, gave birth to a boy, Ted, on July 29 in her home city of Sydney.
Australia’s first Olympic Modern Pentathlon medallist tweeted: “Totally and utterly in love. He didn’t make it easy but we finally get to welcome Ted into the world. My heart is so full and I can’t wait to get him home. Ted Daniel Cooper, 29 July, 4.07kgs #BigLittleTed”
Esposito (AUS) had announced her pregnancy in January, together with the announcement that she would not be competing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games as a result – before the Games were postponed to 2021.
Ed Fernon and Marina Carrier (AUS) have secured quota places for Australia at the rescheduled Games in the Japanese capital, with two remaining spots available to Australian athletes.
