This year a contingent of 45 Griffith students, alumni, swim squad athletes and coaching staff were named in the Australian Olympic team for Tokyo. A total of 19 medals were won by our elite athletes, including a phenomenal 9 gold medals.
“We are incredibly proud of all those from the Griffith community who were selected to represent Australia at the Olympic Games,” Griffith Vice Chancellor and President Professor Carolyn Evans said.
“I congratulate all our athletes and coaching staff and extend our thanks to all those within the Griffith community who helped these incredible individuals to achieve their Olympic dreams. From the support provided by Griffith Sports College to academic groups and scores of individual staff members who paved the way for their success, thank you for your roles in building our Olympians.”
