Australia: 22 athletes pre-selected for the Tokyo Olympics

22 opals have been selected to take part in a week-long training camp from March 22 to 28 in preparation for the Tokyo Olympics.

This list includes players who are unable to participate due to acting abroad.

There are currently no players in the Women’s League, but many have passed France (Rebecca Allen, Kayla George, Lilani Mitchell, Jenna O’Hia, Stephanie Talbot, Marianna Tolo, Sami Whitcomb).

“With team members and coaches from all over the world, we have limited opportunities to train and play together before the Tokyo Olympics,” said coach Sandy Prondello.

In Tokyo, Australia will be in Group C with Puerto Rico, China and Belgium.
