She is currently 1.29 seconds off qualifying for national competition in 2012.

Her coach David Jones said: “Georgia is a great all round swimmer, her main strokes being freestyle and backstroke. I know she will endeavour to try her best as always and continue to reach out for her dreams and help to develop the younger swimmers in our club. Georgia is a great ambassador not only to the sport, but in every area of her life.”
