Part of Dean Boxall’s squad at St Peter’s Western, Jenna Forrester (swimming) was among a slew of talented teenagers who broke into the senior ranks at their first Commonwealth Games in Birmingham where she reached the final of 400m individual medley. She also reached the final at the world championships in Budapest just prior to the Games.
South African born Forrester followed her older sister into swimming when she was young. She tasted success at junior level, winning nine gold medals at the 2017 Australian Age Championships before earning selection for the 2017 World Junior Championships in Indianapolis aged 13. Still eligible for the world juniors’ team two years later, Forrester then collected silver as part of the 4x200m freestyle relay in Budapest.
Jenna won her maiden Australian title in 2021 in the 400m individual medley and repeated her success at the Olympic selection trials in Adelaide two months later, but her time was outside the selection standard for Tokyo.
