Damon Kelly. Olympian. Weightlifter

My Story

Damon is one of the finest weightlifters of his generation and one of the best super heavyweights Australia has produced. Having competed at two Olympic Games (2008, 2012) and completing the full collection of medals at three Commonwealth Games (2006, 2010, 2014) Damon is amongst Australia’s sporting elite. 


Owing to his dedicated training regime, Damon has consistently represented Australia at Oceania, Commonwealth and World Championships from 2001 until now. Damon began his weightlifting journey as a 14 year old school boy and has spent the past 18 years training, studying and competing in weightlifting.


Now with under 2 years to go to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Damon has his sights set on adding one more Gold Medal to his Commonwealth Games collection
