Rohan Browning is a NSWIS scholarship holder, Olympic sprinter and Australia’s second-fastest person ever over 100 metres.
At the 2019 Queensland Track Classic sprinter Rohan Browning clocked 10.08s to equal the fastest 100m time by an Australian on home soil, cementing him as Australia’s third-fastest man across 100m behind Patrick Johnson and Matt Shirvington.
That time also qualified him for the 2019 IAAF World Athletics Championships in Doha – where he became the first Australian man in over a decade to run in the individual 100m at a World Championship.
Browning represented Australia at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in the 4 x 100m men’s relay where the team finished fourth in the final.
At the 2021 Queensland Track Classic, the NSWIS sprinter ran a 10.05s to become the third-fastest Australian over 100m. His 2021 form continued at the Australian Track & Field Championships, winning the final in an impressive 10.09s on a cold Sydney night, which confirmed his spot on the Australian Olympic Team for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
As the Games began, Browning became the first male 100m competitor at the Olympics since Athens 2004. However, the youngster was not just there to make up numbers and ran an incredible 10.01s to win his heat, becoming the second-fastest ever Australian over 100m, and qualify for the semi-final in sixth position.
Browning is a member of the NSWIS Athlete Advisory Group.
