Tokyo will be Erica Dawson's first Olympic Games and she will compete with Micah Wilkinson in the Nacra 17.

Her dreams of going to an Olympic Games were initially in a 49erFX but she switched to the foiling catamaran in 2018, firstly as helm, before teaming up with Micah and switching to crew in the middle of 2019. The pair showed their huge potential when finishing seventh at February's Nacra 17 World Championships in Geelong and they will be coached in Tokyo by two-time Olympic medallist Jo Aleh.

Erica, who grew up in Auckland, enjoyed good success as a junior and youth sailor, and is the only female to have won the Starling national title (2012).
