Joel Mundie (swimming) will be making his Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham. The Cairns teenager was added to the Para-Swimming National Development squad in 2021 after some impressive performances at selection meets and now will make his Commonwealth Games debut in July where he will contest the men’s 50m freestyle S7. Joel was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis, a rare inflammatory disorder of the spinal cord, when he was six months old. He took up swimming aged 11, but still needs to work heavily on his upper body to compensate for his lack of strength in his lower body. In 2017, he claimed three medals and five PBs at the Queensland State titles, before claiming nine Australian junior records at the multi-class nationals. He also carried the Queen’s Baton when it visited his hometown in 2018. Joel swims for the Central Cairns Swim Club where he is coached by Andrew ‘Herbie’ Howard.
