Achievements

A dual Paralympic gold medallist, Downie was originally born in Aberdeen Scotland and moved to Australia as a child. She made her first appearance as a Dolphin at the 2012 London Paralympics where she claimed her gold medals – both in relays – one in the 4x100m freestyle and the other in the 4x100m medley. Now training at Perth City Swim Club under Matt McGee, Downie has also set three world records in the 100m freestyle, 50m butterfly and 50m backstroke events.
