2017 ITU Ranked World #2

An avid school athlete who had taken up triathlon to strengthen her running, Ashleigh Gentle didn’t decide to pursue triathlon professionally until she took the junior world championship title in 2010. When her first appearance in an Olympic Games yielded a disappointing 26th place and the first time Australia had not medaled in triathlon, the Gold Coast native doubled down on her efforts by relocating to train with the Wollongong Wizards, also known as the incubator for world champion and Olympic gold medalist Gwen Jorgensen. The move has paid off with Ashleigh becoming the first athlete selected to represent Australia at the Commonwealth Games in 2018, with the ultimate goal Tokyo 2020.
