Ella Connolly (athletics) is poised for a busy Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham. Having won medals of every colour at the Bahamas 2017 Commonwealth Youth Games, Connolly will look to achieve similar results in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at Birmingham 2022. Moving to the Gold Coast in 2021 to train under Mark Ladbrook, Connolly trains twice a day, six days per week in the company of national representatives Alex Beck and Monique Quirk. Such a set-up has enabled Connolly to achieve compelling results across the 100, 200 and even her former 400 events in season 2021-22. In December 2021, Connolly set a 100m PB of 11.25 at the Dane Bird-Smith Shield in Brisbane. Three months later, she cleaned up at the Queensland Championships, running another 11.25 100m and staking a 200m PB win (22.95). She backed up her 100m/200m double at the Australian championships in April, running an 11.27 and 23.37. Outside of athletics, Connolly studies secondary teaching at Griffith University.
