Achievements

Minna was thrust onto the world stage at the 2015 World Junior Championship where she won gold in the 100m and 200m backstroke – equalling the junior world record in the 100m race. Shortly after she broke that record at the Queensland State titles, she also broke the junior world record in the 50m backstroke at the Queensland Sprint titles. She made her first senior team at the 2016 World Short Course in Windsor and two years later she claimed three bronze medals at the 2018 World Short Course in China – including an individual medal in the 100m backstroke.
