Alex Saffy (swimming) will be making his Commonwealth Games debut at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Recently named the recipient of the highly prestigious Wally Foreman Foundation Scholarship, the last 12 months has seen the talented West Australian swimmer unofficially smash the world record in the men’s 200m Butterfly S9 by over five seconds. Alex was diagnosed with dyskinetic cerebral palsy when he was a child and the symptoms progressed as he aged, which led to regular disqualifications at swim meets. As a result, Alex was encouraged to pursue Para-swimming. After trying hockey, he joined the Bunbury Swimming Club and his development has been remarkable. Nicknamed the “Bunbury Bullet”, Alex qualified for the 2020 Paralympic team but was unable to go to Tokyo because he hadn’t been internationally classified.
