Benjamin Hance

Ben Hance OAM (swimming) will make his Commonwealth Games debut just a few weeks after winning a full set of medals at the World Para Swimming Championships in Madeira. Hance won gold in the men’s 100m backstroke S14 in a championship record (57.34), silver in the mixed 4x100m freestyle S14 and bronze in the event he will contest in Birmingham – the 200m freestyle S14. Ben first came to notice when he broke the 100m backstroke S14 world record at the Australian Para Swimming Championships in 2021, paving the way for his Dolphins debut at the delayed Tokyo 2020 Paralympics. He didn’t disappoint, winning the gold in the event just outside his world record, as well as taking silver in the mixed 4x100m freestyle relay S14 and bronze in the 100m butterfly S14. As a Tokyo 2020 gold medallist, he was awarded the Medal in the General Division (OAM) at Australia Day Honours in 2022. Coached by Nathan Doyle at USC Spartans on the Sunshine Coast, Ben turns 22 on July 25, just four days before swimming gets underway in Birmingham.
