Rohan Browning (athletics) is a 100m powerhouse who made his first Commonwealth Games appearance at the 2018 Gold Coast Games. Browning was the top-ranked Australian 100m sprinter at the 2018 Games and missed the final by an antagonising one-thousandth of a second, he also competed in the Men’s 4 x 100m event where the team finished fourth. Browning debuted at his first Olympics in Tokyo 2020 where he became the first Australian man in 17 years to compete in the 100m event. He became an Aussie sensation after his stunning performance where he ran an incredible 10.01 seconds to win his heat, beating former world champion Yohan Blake and recording the second-fastest time for the Australian books. Unfortunately, Browning just missed out on the Olympic finals finishing fifth in his semi-final running 10.09 seconds. In comparison to his competitors, Browning entered the world of athletics at a later age when he began at 13 whilst also playing Rugby. Off the track, Browning is currently completing his Bachelor of Law/Arts at the University of Sydney and in 2021 he was awarded the Richard Coombes Memorial Award for Most Outstanding Male Athlete. Browning is now working towards becoming a part of the sub-10 club and is a major medal contender to watch out for at the Birmingham 2022 Games.
