Amy Cashin

Amy Cashin (athletics) is ready to make it rain at her Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham when she competes in the 3000m steeplechase. A former state-level gymnast, Cashin won the 2008 Pacific School Games steeplechase title in record time, after starting after-school cross country aged 10. Continued success led the 2012 Werribee High School captain, sports captain and debating team member to pursue a US collegiate athletic career at West Virginia University. In June 2021, Cashin qualified for Tokyo 2020 via her Stumptown Twilight 3000m steeplechase win and PB of 9:28.60. The performance in Portland saw her jump from 10th to 5th on the Australian all-time rankings. Running a 9:34.67 at Tokyo 2020, Cashin finished 11th in her first Olympic heat. In 2022, Cashin continues to climb the Australian rankings. Taking out the Australian title in March in 9:37.92, Cashin found a season’s best 9:31.28 at the USATF Distance Classic in May, before staking a new PB of 9:27.91 at the June Portland Track Festival. Off the track, Cashin is a West Virginia University PhD candidate, researching coaches’ mental health, development and education.
