Braedan Jason

Braedan Jason (swimming) is making his Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham where he will content the men’s 50m freestyle S12 which is on the program for the first time. The second oldest of four boys, Braedan began swimming when he was eight, starting as a nipper at the North Cronulla Surf Life Saving club and continuing after his family moved to Queensland. Braeden combined surf lifesaving and swimming, winning a silver medal at the 2012 Australian Swimming Championships before qualifying for the 2015 World Para Swimming team after some stellar efforts at the trials. He went to his first Paralympics in 2016 where he reached four finals, his second World Championships in 2019 and his second Paralympics in Tokyo in 2021. Braedan was born with cone dystrophy, resulting in him having only 10 per cent of his vision and is classed as legally blind. His brother Nathan, also a swimmer, has the same condition. Braedan works at the ABC as a radio producer and presenter. He has a race day routine of having a coffee before racing.
