Ryan Cochrane has won two medals in two Olympic Games. The 1,500m freestyle specialist captured silver at the London 2012 Games after earning a bronze at the 2008 Games in Beijing in the same event. He also competed in the 400m freestyle in London for a top-10 finish.
Coached by Randy Bennett at the National Swimming Academy of Victoria, Cochrane swam to a silver medal in the 1,500m freestyle at the 2011 World Championships and pre-qualified for the 2012 Canadian Olympic squad.
In 2010, he earned double gold at the Commonwealth Games (400m and 1,500m freestyle) as well as the Pan Pacific Championships (800m and 1,500m freestyle). At the 2009 World Championships, he earned third and second place finishes in the 800m and 1,500m respectively.
Cochrane started swimming competitively at age eight.
