We believe progress comes from doing what can’t be done. That’s why we’re proud supporters of athletes who dare to defy barriers.
Jess has severe scoliosis, meaning she has an S-shaped bend in her spine. Jess could have surgery to cure her condition but decided against it to continue competitive swimming. Now that’s commitment.
And it’s paid off. Jess made her Olympic debut in London 2012, and set an Australian record for the 400m and 1500m at the 2015 World Championship. So show your support for Jess as she defies barriers at Rio 2016.
