College Sport Media:

Gina Galloway from Diocesan School for Girls will be competing in the pool at the upcoming Youth Olympic Games in Argentina as one of four young New Zealand swimmers selected to attend the Games.

Galloway (aged 17) is the granddaughter of Ngaire Galloway, who at 93 years old, is New Zealand’s oldest living Olympian, and like Galloway senior competes in the backstroke.

Galloway junior won a bronze medal at the 2017 Youth Commonwealth Games and will compete in the women’s 50m, 100m, 200m backstroke and 100m butterfly events.

“Growing up listening to her stories from her experiences and trips in swimming and the friends she’s made through the sport all over the world has been really inspiring for me,” said Gina Galloway.

The Youth Olympic Games will run from October 6-18th in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
