Chloe Esposito made history as the youngest Australian female modern pentathlete to compete at an Olympic selection event in 2007. The 15-year-old competed at the Oceania Championships but missed out on a spot on the Beijing Olympic Team.
Esposito persisted in the sport and realised her dream when she made the 2012 Australian Olympic Team, replicating the efforts of her father and coach Daniel Esposito who competed at the 1984 Olympic Games in modern pentathlon.
Esposito performed strongly in London to finish seventh overall- the best ever result by an Australian female since the event was opened up to both genders in 2000. After a fair performance in the opening fencing discipline, Esposito’s trademark strong swim and solid riding pulled her up 12 places to 16th going into the final leg. In the exciting combined run-shoot climax, Esposito made up nine places to claim a top 10 finish.
Chloe’s younger sister Emily competed at the 2010 Singapore Youth Olympics in pistol shooting.
