Jack Ireland (swimming) will be making his Commonwealth Games debut at the Birmingham 2022 Games. Ireland is one of 19 Commonwealth Games debutants on the 30-strong Birmingham Para-Dolphin swim team. Hailing from Newcastle in NSW where he learnt to swim in primary school, Ireland then moved to Brisbane when he was 13 to begin training under David Heyden at the University of Queensland. Competing in the S14 category for intellectual disability, Ireland first broke into the Australian Para-Dolphins squad at the Indianapolis leg of the 2017 World Series. On that occasion, he achieved two gold, one silver and two bronze medals. Two years later, he placed 8th in the 200m freestyle S14 final at the World Para Swimming Championships in London. The 2016 Australia Day Junior Athlete of the Year finished 4th in the men’s 200m freestyle at the 2022 world championships in Madeira and won a silver in the mixed 4x100m freestyle relay.
