Sinead Diver

Sinead Diver (athletics) is one of Australia’s most successful marathon runners and will be making her Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham. Competing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Diver finished an impressive tenth recording a time of two hours, 31 minutes and 14 seconds. Diver became just the second woman after Lisa Ondieki to finish inside the top ten in the women’s Olympic Marathon event. Born in Ireland, Diver came to Australia in 2002 on a working holiday with her now husband Colin. Her pathway to the top has been nothing short of unconventional with Diver taking up the sport when she was 33 years old as a way to improve her fitness after the birth of her second son. Over the last few years, she has competed at three consecutive world championships, compiling an extraordinary set of personal bests including 2:25.19 in Melbourne, then 2:24.11 in London, elevating her to number three Australian all-time. Selected for Tokyo Olympics at age 44, Diver became the oldest Australian to ever compete in athletics at the Olympics. Not only does Diver balance being a mum with training, but she also works full time as a Senior Analyst Engineer and despite her busy lifestyle is focused on performing her best at the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games.
