After an interrupted season with no international competition due to Covid restrictions and suffering rib injuries which put him back over 3 months, Matthew is very excited to have qualified. 

 Currently ranked Number 8 in the World, Matthew is the only Allora athlete to have competed at two Olympic Games - the other being Rio de Janeiro in 2016. 

The Tokyo Olympics will be held from Friday 23rd July to Sunday 8th August with Matthew flying out of Australia early July.
