Brennon Dowrick

Australian Brennon Dowrick is one of Australia’s most successful gymnasts. He has represented Australia at two Olympic games, three Commonwealth Games and seven World Championships.

Brennon was Australia’s first ever gymnastics Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist in 1990, a feat he repeated in 1994. He also was Australia’s first Olympic games finalist at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.

From the age of seven, Brennon had the goal of representing his country at the Olympic games. Originally he was a member of Canberra United Gymnastics Club, joining the Australian Institute of Sport at the age of twelve and spending sixteen years on scholarship. Brennon lived through highs and lows with an unwavering passion to achieve beyond his dreams.

In addition to his elite sporting career, Brennon completed a journalism degree and worked with one of Australia’s leading corporations. Brennon is married to Kym and is father to Nathan, Mia, Troy and Kira. Fatherhood, he believes, is the most challenging career of all! These life experiences allow him to understand the demands of corporate life and to motivate and lead others to achieve success.

In the near future Brennon and his business partners will be opening the first All Round Gymnastics Centre on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. All Round Gymnastics will be a recreational gym for ages 12 months to adult and will offer an exceptional and unique gymnastics program for all who attend.
