Caringbah's Ollie Hoare and Barden Ridges Rohan Browning will join the 63-strong Athletics squad.
The Athletics competition will run from 30 July - 8 August at Tokyo's Olympic Stadium for track and field, and Sapporo Odori Park for road events.
1500 metre runner Ollie Hoare from Caringbah is a member of the Sutherland Athletics Club and has found form at the right time.
Hoare was a quick US college runner but has got better since he graduated from the University of Wisconsin - and turned pro. In his first year as a pro runner his times have dropped rapidly.
"It's been a break-out year already," Hoare said before he was selected.
Hoare gambled and didn't come to Australia for the nationals where he could have raced with a qualifying time that was an automatic ticket to Tokyo.
"Athletics Australia understood that my best way to make the team was to compete against people who are going to be at the Olympic Games, to win those races and to run those times." he said
In February, Hoare set a Australian national indoor record when he ran 3 minutes 32.35 seconds, the seventh-fastest by anyone in the world indoors.
He also raced in Europe at the Gateshead Diamond League which gave an opportunity for Australia's athletes to see how they match the world's best in 2021.
Ollie clocked 3:36.58 to finish in second place behind Norway's Jakob Ingebrigtsen (3:36.27) in what has been an outstanding season to date.
Rohan Browning got to the Tokyo start line after receiving automatic nomination following victory at the Australian Track and Field Championships.
The men's 100m had all eyes on current sprint sensation Rohan Browning as he ticked another box on his journey to become the first Australian in 17 years to compete in the 100m at the Olympic Games.
Stopping the clock at 10.09 (0.4) Browning said the run filled him with confidence about what was to come .
"To run a 10.0 in a cold night with no wind in Sydney makes me really confident for the Olympics," Browning said at the time.
"I never want to be a lane filler. I never want to go out there to bomb out in the heats. I want to be competitive and I really think I can."
Browning is coached by three-time Olympian and world indoor medallist, Andrew Murphy who also lives in Sutherland Shire and he competes for the Sydney University Athletics Club.
Ian Chesterman, Chef de Mission of the Australian Olympic Team, congratulated the athletes on selection.
"To have so many athletes qualify is a great reflection of their commitment and persistence. It also speaks volumes of the tremendous support from their coaches, families, friends and Athletics Australia. The depth and talent we have in Australian athletics is exciting."Mr Chesterman said.
