A DREAM has come true for Tommy Fleetwood with his selection to represent Team GB at the Tokyo Olympics.

The Holmes Chapel-based European Tour ace will make his Olympic debut alongside teammate Paul Casey at Kasumigaseki Country Club from July 29 to August 1.

“Today I officially realise a dream,” Fleetwood wrote on Twitter. “To say it’s an honour to represent my nation at the Olympic Games is an understatement.

“To have a chance to compete for an Olympic medal and to be among the very few special athletes whom can call themselves Olympians is almost every sports person’s dream.

“I’ve been inspired by the Olympics since I was a little kid so whatever else happens in my life, nothing will ever change the fact that Tommy Fleetwood will have been an Olympian and that is just very cool.”

Knutsford and its outlying areas will be well represented at the Olympics.

Rowing siblings Tom and Emily Ford as well as husband-and-wife cyclists Jason and Laura Kenny will also be heading to Tokyo.
