Triathletes Erin Densham, Emma Moffatt heading to third Olympics

SYDNEY -- Bronze medalists Erin Densham and Emma Moffatt are preparing for their third Olympic Games after being selected Monday in Australia's six-member triathlon team to compete at Rio de Janeiro in August.

Densham placed third at the London Olympics in 2012, and Moffatt finished third at Beijing in 2008. Both are 31 and will jointly become the first Australian triathletes to compete at three Olympics.

The remaining four members of the team will be competing at an Olympics for the first time.

Ashleigh Gentle joins Densham and Moffatt in the women's lineup, while Ryan Bailie, Ryan Fisher and Aaron Royle were selected in the men's team.
