AusCycling can confirm that Cameron Meyer has withdrawn from the Australian Olympic Team for the Tokyo 2020 Games due to personal reasons.

Statement from Cameron Meyer

“Some unfortunate news, I am sad to say I have had to withdraw myself from the Australian Cycling Team for the upcoming Tokyo Olympic Games.

“Due to family health reasons where my father is continuing to battle Stage 4 Brain Cancer and with the difficult travel restrictions around the COVID Pandemic, I believe I am unable to represent my country in Tokyo at 100%.

“The Olympics are a special privilege for any athlete, and I would not feel right knowing my condition was not where it needed to be due to my current circumstances.

“I look forward to spending some quality time with my family during this difficult period and will be cheering on what I’m sure will be a successful Australian Olympic Team.”

Regards

Cameron Meyer

Simon Jones, AusCycling Performance Director

“Our immediate thoughts are with Cameron and his family at this tough time.

“We will reconvene as a selection panel in the coming days and discuss how we can nominate a rider to maximise our medal objectives.”
