Brenna Kean (weightlifting) will be the first Australian weightlifter in action in Birmingham where she will make her Commonwealth Games debut. Initially a competitive swimmer and CrossFit competitor before switching to weightlifting in 2018, Brenna’s first club competition was in her hometown of Geelong in March 2021 which qualified her for the Victorian Championships the following month. Kean set her clean & jerk personal best of 108kg at the Australian championships in November 2021, and snatch (82kg) and total (190kg) at the Singapore International in February 2022. Kean is coached by Miles Wydall from Brisbane’s Cougars Weightlifting Club, although she is still based in Geelong. Her favourite Commonwealth Games moment was watching fellow CrossFit enthusiast Tia-Clair Toomey win gold in the 58kg at the Gold Coast 2018 Games, a feat she hopes to replicate in Birmingham.
