Rhiannon Clarke

Rhiannon Clarke (athletics) made her Commonwealth Games debut on the Gold Coast in 2018, the then 15-year-old Joondalup schoolgirl coming from the clouds to win silver in the 100m T37/38. This made her the youngest athlete from any country to win a Para-sport medal at the 2018 Games. Rhiannon, who has cerebral palsy, started in athletics after attending a ‘come and try’ day in 2014. Although she had broken a number of national junior records, she never expected to qualify for the Gold Coast Games, then went on to claim bronze medals in both the 100m and 200m at the world championships in Dubai the following year. Rhiannon finished 5th at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, behind the woman who beat her on the Gold Coast, England’s Sophie Hahn. Rhiannon was awarded a Pierre de Coubertin Award for sportsmanship by the Australian Olympic Committee in 2018. Coached by Danny Kevan, she turns 20 the week before the Birmingham Games. Off the track, she enjoys equestrian events, especially vaulting, as well as ballroom dancing.
