Aoife Coughlin (judo) has been enjoying a stellar few years in the sport making her world championships debut in Budapest, Olympic debut in Tokyo and now her Commonwealth Games debut in the women’s 70kg in Birmingham. Another product of a judo family, Aoife’s parents met through the sport while at university in Ireland, before deciding to come to Australia. The family was based in Traralgon in Victoria’s Gippsland, a 20-minute drive to the nearest judo club. Both older brother Eoin and younger sister Maeve have represented Australia in the sport, with Eoin going to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Coughlin has five Australian and two Oceania senior titles to go along with bronze medals at the Asian championships in 2019 and 2021. In 2021, she also finished 5th at the Doha World Masters – rated the toughest event on the international circuit behind the world championships and the Olympics – as well as 7th at the Budapest world championships. A month later, she made her Olympic debut in Tokyo but was eliminated in the round of 16. Aoife works and trains at the Resilience Training Centre in Melbourne.
