Anthony Dean

A reserve for the London 2012 Team, Anthony Dean climbed into the top ten in the world to book his spot at his debut Olympic Games in Rio.The South Australian product began competing when he was seven and after impressing in the national series, he got his first chance at competing on the world circuit in 2013. He had a breakout year in 2014 winning his first World Cup medal and finished second in the World Cup rankings. Another strong season put him well in contention for Rio qualification before his Olympic dreams were almost shattered. Dean snapped his collarbone in training in early January but after surgery he made a quick recovery to make it back for the season’s opening World Cup event. 
 
In Rio, Dean was exceptional moving through the quarter-finals as the highest ranked rider before winning each of his three semi-final races to join teammate Sam Willoughby in the final. Unfortunately Dean couldn’t match his earlier feats, getting caught up in traffic to finish his debut Olympic campaign in eighth.
