Kotuku Ngawati’s Olympic dream will be realised in Rio after she secured a spot in the 200m individual medley. Ngawati set a personal best time of 2:11.03 when she finished second behind Alicia Coutts at the Rio Selection Trials.
Ngawati won silver at the 2010 World Short Course Championships in the 100m individual medley. Her 59.18 time saw her become the third fastest Australian woman ever in the event.
Looking to make her first Games team in 2012, Ngawati just missed out on the 2012 Team.
She made her debut Commonwealth Games appearance in 2014 when she competed in the 200 individual medley however her swim of 2:17.04 did not see her progress from the heats to the finals.
