JADE LAUREN EDMISTONE
As a member of the Australian Swim Team for five years between 2004 and 2008, Jade stamped her authority in sprint breaststroke, winning three World Titles and breaking five World Records.
Jade's journey to becoming the fastest woman in the World was not short of challenges. Starting training at the age of 8, Jade didn't swim all-year-round until the age of 15 years. Instead, she played lots of other sports, with a particular talent in touch football, making representative teams in multiple sports each year.
After battling with depression following the tragic loss of a close friend, Jade quit swimming at the age of 18, only to return two years later. With exceptional drive, dedication, commitment, resilience, focus and persistence, Jade became the fastest woman in the World two years into her successful comeback.
Jade retired from competitive swimming in 2009 after falling pregnant with her first child, and now has two beautiful girls. She continues her involvement in the sport through her work with Swimming Queensland, The ONCORE Academy and sharing of stories in her book, Fish Out Of Water. Her passion in helping the future generation of athletes is second to none!
