Swimming, Fencing, Show Jumping, Pistol Shooting and Running. The final day of competition starts early in the morning and finishes early evening. Stamina is tested, technique critically examined, mental strength scrutinized. Not just in one sport but in five. Australia’s Chloe Esposito OAM is the Rio Olympic Games Gold Medallist in one of the most demanding of all sports...The Modern Pentathlon.
Chloe is a remarkable Australian woman who leads from the front. She is an inspirational speaker and an elegant role model. Chloe has the personality and charisma to enhance any corporate occasion.
Undeterred by the neigh sayers and Modern Pentathlon being a minnow sport in Australia, Chloe has always had big dreams. She attempted to qualify for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games at just 15 years of age. Her 3rd place finish at the Oceania Championships in 2007 wasn’t quite enough to qualify her but her hunger for success had certainly been sparked.
Eleven years on, Chloe has competed at two Olympic Games. She has famously won the hearts of Australia when she became Olympic Champion at the 2016 Rio Games…with an Olympic record!
Following in the steps of father and now Coach, Daniel, Chloe first tasted podium success in 2011 at just 20 years old when she won the Swiss Open International. Since then she has been a top 10 regular and has established her position as one of the best Pentathletes on the world circuit.
In 2011 she returned to the Oceania Championships in Cheng Du, China seeking London Olympic qualification and achieved just that, qualifying 1st. Chloe went on to achieve Australia’s best female result in London. She came from behind when she started the final combined event in 16th place. Her charge saw her finish in 7th and that gritty determination has become her trademark.
Although still under the radar of most Australians, 2012 was a pinnacle year for Chloe as she won her first World Cup medal in Rio De Janeiro as well as Australia’s first medal at a World Championships.
Fast forward to 2016 having qualified for the Rio Olympic Games and overcoming some prolonged injuries, Chloe Esposito was poised to take on the world. After 3 disciplines Chloe was 7th. She stormed through the field with precision shooting and superior cross country running to take home the crown as Olympic Champion and Australia’s first medallist at an Olympic Games.
Following on from her Olympic success Chloe was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for her services to Sport in 2017
Always pushing for more Chloe has set herself to two clear goals. They are to become World Champion and then to go on and represent Australia at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
