Blake Cochrane

Blake Cochrane OAM (swimming) will become the first Australian para swimmer to go to four Commonwealth Games when he competes in the men’s 100m breaststroke SB7 in Birmingham. The 13-time Australian champion made his debut at Delhi 2010 aged 19 and went on to compete at Glasgow 2014 and Gold Coast 2018, winning four medals across three different strokes (freestyle, individual medley and breaststroke). Blake was born without fingers and toes and his parents encouraged him to take up swimming to combat his asthma. He started competitively when he was 16-years-old and a year later was selected for the 2007 Arafura Games in Darwin. He made his Paralympic debut in Beijing in 2008, where he claimed silver in the 100m breaststroke SB7. He went on to win gold in the event at London 2012, another silver in Rio in 2016 and completed the set with bronze at his fourth Paralympic Games in Tokyo in 2020. He is also a veteran of four world championships, where he has also claimed a full set of medals in the event. Blake graduated in exercise physiology from the University of the Sunshine Coast in 2017. He and wife Lauren are parents to a son, Eli.
