Chloe Esposito swaps grit for glamour ... for now

With Tokyo 2020 off the table, Chloe Esposito has her sights set on representing Australia at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.

Esposito won gold in the individual modern pentathlon at the Rio games in 2016 but won't be heading to Japan this year after announcing she is pregnant with her first child last month.

"It is a bit disappointing that I am not going to Tokyo but this is a great reason I guess not to go," Esposito told The Daily Telegraph.

"I will have the baby and then I'd like to get back into training for Paris 2024, the following Olympic Games. That is the plan because I will still be able to compete.

"The plans have changed a bit but I will definitely start training after I have this child."

Esposito and husband Matt Cooper have decided not to find out the gender of the baby until the birth.

"I'm nearly at 14 weeks so things are looking up from here," she said. "I have been really sick, vomiting and all of that stuff, but it is getting better. I am just excited and can't wait to have a baby. I am a little bit scared but I can't wait to see how it all turns out and I can't wait to be a mum."
