Madeleine McTernan (swimming) will be making her Commonwealth Games debut at the Birmingham Games. Maddie took up swimming as a youngster, winning her first medal when she was in Grade Six at St Francis Xavier School in the NSW north coast town of Woolgoolga. Maddie later moved to the St Hilda’s Swim School on the Gold Coast to further her career. However, her real breakthrough came when she claimed an astonishing eight gold medals at the 2019 Australian Age Championships in Adelaide, earning her a spot on the team for the world championships in London. She claimed two gold medals at the 2019 International Federation for Athletes with Intellectual Impairments (INAS) Global Games in Brisbane. In 2020, Maddie broke the 400m freestyle S14 world record during the Australian short course championships and later gained selection for her first Paralympics in Tokyo where she was part of the silver-medal winning mixed 4x100m freestyle S14 relay and also finished a close 4th in the 100m backstroke final.
