Secondary Sport

On Wednesday 25 August, Kirralee H competed in the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games in the 100 metres Butterfly and finished in 12th place with a personal best time. The College celebrated this by dressing in Green and Gold and watched “The Race That Stopped the School”. She also raced in her pet event, the 50 metre Freestyle, on Sunday, 29 August coming 4th .

Kirralee commenced her swimming journey at Genesis when the pool first opened in 2012. She started training in the Skills Squad which is the first level after Learn to Swim. She became a foundation member of the Genesis Aquatics Swimming Club and this was the beginning of her competitive pathway. Through her swimming career, Kirralee currently holds 22 Queensland records and 6 Australian records. She has won State and National Championships and we are very proud to have a home-grown Paralympian at our College.

On behalf of the College we would also like to congratulate the coaching team at Genesis Aquatics (Brendan Keogh, Rick Pendleton and Tony Keogh) for the role they played in coaching and mentoring Kirralee through her swimming development. We look forward to celebrating Kirralee’s achievements on her return.
