Achievements

When Tom Gallagher turned his focus to pool swimming from Surf Life Saving at the end of 2020, the Somerset athlete dreamed of making a Paralympic Team. Now, less than a year later, he has done just that. Selected to represent Australia at the Tokyo Paralympics, Gallagher not only qualified for the team, but broke the Australian record in the Men's 400m Freestyle (S10) at the Trials as well. He'll definitely be one to watch as his star continues to rise.
