Kayhan Ozcicek-Takagi (judo) will make his Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham in the men’s 100kg. Born in Sydney to a Turkish father and Japanese-Australian mother, Kayhan moved back to Japan with his family when he was young and represented his adopted nation on a handful of occasions, including winning gold at both the All-Japan and Asian Championships in 2015. After sitting out of the sport for a mandatory period, he started competing for Australia in April 2017 although he still competes on the professional club circuit in Japan. Ozcicek-Takagi captured a bronze medal at the Tel Aviv Grand Prix in 2019, becoming the first Australian male to win an International Judo Federation tour medal, as well as another bronze at the Marrakech Grand Prix later the same year. His third significant bronze medal came at the Pan American-Oceania Championships in Lima in April 2022.
