Name: Ben Fletcher

Event: Judo - 100 kg

Age: 29

Ben Fletcher will be appearing at his second Olympics after competing at Rio 2016 for Great Britain in the men's 100kg category.

Switching to Ireland in 2017, Fletcher had a major scare before his place at the Olympics was confirmed. Breaking his leg in two places in February he had to wait to see if his ranking position would hold enough to secure his spot, which thankfully it did.

Gold medals at IJF Grand Prix in Marrakesh and Tunnis along with silvers in Tel Aviv and Hohhot are indications of where Fletcher was form wise before his injury and he'll be hoping to rediscover that form in Tokyo.

Fletcher's sister Megan has also qualified to represent Ireland in judo, meaning that 2020 will be the first time that Ireland is represented in both the male and female judo events.
