Four of Super League’s star athletes have today had their Olympic places for Tokyo confirmed.
The British Olympic association has announced that Vicky Holland, Georgia Taylor-Brown and Jessica Learmonth will fill the three women’s spots.
Jonny Brownlee is the sole male athlete to be named with one other to be confirmed. If Great Britain can accrue more points then they will be able to qualify a third male athlete.
Holland picked up a bronze medal at the Rio Olympics in 2016, while world champion Taylor-Brown and Learmonth, who won the debut event of the SLT Arena Games in dominating fashion in August, are amongst the favourites to podium in Tokyo.
Jonny Brownlee will be heading to his third games and aiming for the only medal that has so far eluded him – gold.
Brownlee spoke openly about his ambitions for Tokyo in a revealing chat with fellow Super League star Richard Murray, and insisted the one year delay to the Olympics would work in his favour.
