Tinka Easton (judo) will be making her Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham and will be primed after competing in a number of European events in the women’s 52kg ahead of the 2022 Games. After encouragement from her mother and brother to try a sport, the then 10-year-old joined the Bushido Judo Club at Shoalhaven Heads Community Centre on the NSW south coast. She cites her first coach, Bruce Fagan, as giving her a love for the sport. Tinka claimed three consecutive Australian under-21 titles between 2014 and 2016 followed by three consecutive senior titles from 2017 to 2019. After a top-16 finish at the 2018 world championships, she then took a bronze medal at the Sarajevo European Cup in 2019. Easton has appeared at four world championships but has yet to qualify for an Olympic Games. Tinka moved to Melbourne in 2021 to train at the CombatAus National Performance Centre under Daniel Kelly and is studying nutrition through the University of South Australia.
