Isabella Vincent

Isabella Vincent (swimming) is the youngest member of the Para-swimming team in Birmingham, South Australian high school student Isabella Vincent will contest the 100m backstroke S7 on her Commonwealth Games debut. Isabella was born with sacral agenesis regression syndrome, which affects the development of the lower spine. After being encouraged by her hydrotherapist to take up swimming, Isabella joined the ENable program at Norwood Swimming Club, a multi-class program for swimmers with a disability. She took up competitive swimming in 2018 and later that year collected nine medals at the School Sport Australia Championships in Hobart. In 2020, Isabella was awarded the Matthew Cowdrey Trophy for the best performance at the South Australian Short Course Swimming Championships. At the 2021 Australian Age Swimming Championships, Isabella dominated her events, claiming five gold medals, three silver and a bronze and was later named as the youngest member of the Australian swim team for the 2020 Paralympics after more impressive performances at the trials. In Tokyo, she picked up silver as part of the women’s 4x100m freestyle relay (34 points) and bronze in the women’s 4x100m medley relay (34 points). Her friends at Pembroke School in Adelaide decorated her locker with green and gold ribbons after her Paralympics selection – what will they do if she wins gold in Birmingham?
