The Coffs Harbour Swimming Club member won silver and bronze medals at last year’s Australia All Schools Swimming Championships.

Coco won silver in a relay event, and bronze in the 200m individual medley.

Her mother Linda explained what made her such an outstanding swimmer.

“She’s just passionate about it and loves training, and loves everything about swimming,” she said.

“She goes for records and personal bests all the time, and she finds out what the record is and tries to break it.

“She loves to win and is very competitive in everything.”

Coco felt honoured to receive the NSW State Representative Award.

“I feel proud of myself, and it felt good to receive the award,” she said.

In addition to her swimming achievements, the St John Paul College Coffs Harbour student is a member of the Coffs Harbour Suns Under 14s girls representative basketball team.
