Oliver Hoare

Ollie Hoare (athletics) will be making his Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham and will be hoping to become the first Australian since Herb Elliott in 1958 to win either the men’s 1500m or mile event. Hoare impressed at his first major championship appearance when making the Olympic final of the 1500m in Tokyo, but the US-based runner had to settle for 11th. In January 2022, the rising middle-distance star celebrated his 25th birthday in style, smashing the Australian and Oceania indoor records in the prestigious Wanamaker Mile at the Millrose Games in New York with a winning time of 3 minutes, 50.83 seconds. Hoare started as a swimmer, competing at state level, but with a father (Greg) who had excelled at running in beach events, the switch seemed inevitable. After winning the 2015 Australian cross-country title, Hoare gained a scholarship to the University of Wisconsin, winning the 1500m at the NCAA titles in 2018.
