Congratulations to Kirralee H for her selection in the Australian Team for the Paralympics in Tokyo. Kirralee will represent Australia in the 50m Freestyle. Kirralee started swimming training at Genesis when the Aquatics Centre opened in 2012. She has demonstrated outstanding commitment to her sport and her character both in and out of the water has been exemplary. Kirralee has been supported well by her parents, coaches and teachers at Genesis who have all contributed towards her being able to fulfil her dreams of becoming a Paralympian. We wish Kirralee well as she starts her swimming journey towards the Paralympics this August and into the future.
