Great Britain's team for Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is on course to contain more women than men for the first time, chief de mission Mark England has told the BBC.
The number of women in the British team could rise above 50 percent from 44 percent at Rio in 2016, he added. "For the first time it looks like we might have more women than men in the Great Britain team for Tokyo as we see the fruition of some fabulous athletic talent," the BBC quoted England as saying.
"We have seen some fantastic role models in multiple Olympic champions like Heather Stanning and Helen Glover, Jade Jones and Nicola Adams. "Everybody also looks up to Jessica Ennis-Hill and they have clearly all had a great impact in terms of inspiring a new class of young female athletes which is now emerging."
