Achievements

A triple Paralympian with two gold and silver medals to his name, Cochrane is a decorated athlete and a natural leader within the Dolphins team. An unexpected call up to the 2008 Beijing Paralympics team saw the Queenslander claim his first silver medal in the Men’s 100m Breaststroke (SB7). Continuing to build on his momentum, three years later he claimed a whopping five gold medals at the Para Pan Pacs in Canada, not before also securing a silver medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Dehli, India. Competing at Rio in 2016, Cochrane came home with a silver medal and most recently, he scooped up a silver in the 200m individual medley (SM8) and a bronze in the 100m breaststroke (SB8) in front of a home crowd at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
