Gerogia Bohl booked her ticket to her first Olympic Games when she won the 100m breaststroke in a personal best time of 1:06.12 at the selection trials in April. The time moved her to the fourth fastest Australian in the event.
The 19-year-old then finished second behind Taylor McKeown in the 200m breaststroke but missed the qualifying time by just under a second. She also went on to win the non-Olympic 50m breaststroke event at the trials.
Georgia is the daughter of esteemed coach Michael Bohl. She has been coached by her father since a young age with the results evident of the successful partnership. Also in their squad at St Peters Western Swim Club are fellow Rio Team members Madeline Groves, Madison Wilson, Bronte Barratt and Brittany Elmslie.
Rio 2016 will be her first big international competition but she is not fazed by this and has plenty of experienced mentors.
She has a kitten and loves the beach and sun.
