Career Highlights

Placing 5th in shot put at the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing


Born with cerebral palsy, Brydee Moore lives by the motto “see the athlete, not the disability.” At her first international competition, the 2006 FESPIC Games, she cleaned the field in discus and shot put, taking home gold in both events.

Brydee has 13 National Championship gold medals to her name, and holds the F33 Oceanic records in shot put and javelin. Her shot put personal best, 6.47m, is also in touching distance of the world record.

Brydee first represented Australia at the Paralympic Games in Beijing in 2008. She placed 5th in discus and shot put but raised the roof when she set a new personal best in discus, eclipsing her old mark by two metres. Extremely happy with her results in Beijing, the experience she gained there proved to be invaluable to her preparation for the London Games.

At the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, Brydee placed 4th in shot put behind her Australian teammate, Louise Ellery. She placed 6th in shot put and 10th in javelin at the Paralympic Games in London, and just missed out on shot put bronze in Rio.

Brydee credits her coach, John Eden, as being one of her role models and proudly wears a tiki charm he gifted her around her neck. She says that she cannot take it off and given that she has a green belt in karate, you would have to be a very brave person to try to take it from her!

Away from the field, Brydee loves to cook and enjoys TV comedies like Kath and Kim and Summer Heights High.

Brydee’s main ambition is to represent Australia at eight Paralympic Games.
