Jasmine Greenwood (swimming) was the strong favourite ahead of winning gold in the women’s 200m individual medley SM10 at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games. Just a few weeks earlier, she had won bronze in the event at the world championships in Madeira and a year before that was the silver medallist at the Tokyo Paralympic Games. Jasmine also had a strong showing at her first Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018 as the youngest athlete on the 469-strong Australian Team at 13, reaching the final in both the 100m breaststroke SB9 and 200m individual medley SM10.
Growing up in the NSW south coast town of Sussex Inlet, Jasmine started swimming at an early age. However, she acquired a brain injury when she was six following complications from a bout of acute appendicitis and swimming became a method for her rehabilitation. She made her international debut at the 2017 Canadian Open in Toronto just before her 13th birthday.
Jasmine was one of the inaugural Kurt Fearnley Scholarship recipients launched in 2019 by Commonwealth Games Australia and the Carbine Club of NSW to help support young Para-sport athletes in New South Wales.
Named Sport NSW Young Athlete of the Year with a Disability in 2022, Jasmine is studying for a Bachelor of Science in Psychology at the University of Canberra close to where she trains at the Australian Institute of Sport.
Jasmine says that her mum Chelsea has been the most influential person on her career and Ellie Cole is her sporting idol.
