Ed Fernon

Sydneysider Ed Fernon always dreamt of competing at the Olympics and set himself the challenge of modern pentathlon. Having never tried fencing or shooting before, and with a fair amount of improving to do in the swim leg, Fernon set his mind to task while studying at Sydney University and gained selection for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Ranked 111th in the world going into the Games, Fernon posted one of the fastest final run times for a credible 27th in the gruelling event.
