Ben Hance OAM (swimming) made his Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham where he won silver in the men’s 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. He has also won eight medals from just two appearances at the World Para Swimming Championships in Madeira 2022 and Manchester 2023, including consecutive gold in the 100m backstroke S14.
Previously coached by Nathan Doyle at USC Spartans, Ben made the move to Ashley Delaney at St Andrews in 2023.
As a Tokyo 2020 Paralympic gold medallist, he was awarded the Medal in the General Division (OAM) at Australia Day Honours in 2022.
