An elite middle-distance runner, Sally Fitzgibbons dreamt of competing at the Olympics as a child.
The Gerroa talent thought that dream was over when she chose to pursue surfing over athletics, however that suddenly changed when the sport was added to the Tokyo program.
Competing in the biggest sporting event in the world, Fitzgibbons is determined to claim the first surfing gold medal on offer.
Owen Wright's path to Japan has been less straightforward, the 31-year-old suffering a traumatic brain injury after a wipeout in 2015.
After learning how to walk again, the surfer eventually returned to the world tour.
While sister Tyler has made headlines through two world titles, the Olympics represent an opportunity for the Culburra Beach surfer to etch his name into history.
