Commonwealth Games integrates able-bodied and para-athletes swimming side-by-side

Gold Coast 2018

The Para Mobility Kingfisher provided pool accessibility in the Athletes Village as the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018 offered accessibility and inclusiveness to both able-bodied para-athletes and spectators.

Ellie Cole, 100m freestyle bronze medallist sums up the GC18 Games “When I was growing up I looked up to able-bodied Olympic swimmers and never got to see the para-swimmers on TV racing beside the Olympians. For me, I really want to send a message out to the young disabled swimmers of Australia to have a real good crack at sport.”

Para-athlete swimmers proudly boosted the Aussie medal tally.
