Rohan Browning is one of Australia’s brightest young prospects in the field of Athletics after switching over from Rugby in his early teenage years. He burst onto the scene in 2014 when he ran a wind-assisted 10.18 (+3.4 m/s) in the 100m at the Australian All Schools Championships at the age of just 16.
In 2017, he represented Australia in the 4 x 100m relay team at the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London. He then placed 2nd at the 2018 Australian Championships in the 100m booking him a place on the Australian team in the individual 100m as well as the 4 x 100m relay at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. He finished 9th missing the final by an agonising one thousandth of a second.
He continued this form in 2019, running a new personal best of 10.08 at the Queensland Track Classic which saw him compete in the 2019 World Championships in Doha where he became the first Australian man to run in the 100m at a World Championships for 12 years.
Two years later, he became only the 2nd Australian ever to break the magical 10 second barrier in the 100m running 9.96 (+3.3 m/s). He then ran 10.05 in Queensland once again, an Olympic Qualifier, which was the fastest time ever by an Australian in Australia. He finished the domestic season off by winning the National Title in Sydney in a time of 10.09.
Rohan then became the first Australian to compete in the men's 100m at an Olympic Games for 17 years where he proceeded through to the semis after winning his heat in a time of 10.01. With this time, he became the 2nd fastest Australian of all time.
