Sarah Cochrane (weightlifting) won silver in the women’s 64kg at her Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham behind two-time defending champion and reigning Olympic champion Maude Charron of Canada. Rockhampton born and bred Sarah started in gymnastics when she was young, competing until she was 17 before relocating with her family to Townsville in 2008. After several years, she was introduced to weightlifting through CrossFit where she met her coach Bryce Knight, competing in her first event in early 2018 and making her first Australian team after only five competitions. She claimed a silver medal in 64kg at the Pacific Games and bronze at the Commonwealth Championships in Samoa in 2019 and narrowly missed selection for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Cochrane then finished 7th in the 64kg at the 2021 World Championships in Tashkent, with her total (210kg) giving her the Commonwealth title that was also decided at that competition. Sarah earned a degree in speech pathology from James Cook University and now owns Say It Your Way which works with people with complex communication needs who require different forms of communication to either augment, or use instead of, their own speech.
