Date of Birth
Anna Bay, NSW
First Competed for Australia
Geoff Huegill, Andrew Lauterstein, Libby Trickett
Winning two silver medals at London 2012, breaking the short course world record in 50m backstroke
Making her debut in national colours at the 2011 Global Games in Italy, burgeoning teenage star Taylor Corry produced a highly promising first up performance. Taylor was one of the stars of the meet, winning eight gold medals and one silver.
Her outstanding form continued at her first Paralympic Games where she won two silver medals in the 100m backstroke and 200m freestyle to become one of two Australian swimmers with an intellectual disability to win a medal.
Taylor initially made waves at the 2009 National Underage Championships, where she won three gold and two silver medals to underline her enormous potential. Still only a teenager who is yet to finish school, Taylor has continued to dominate all junior events she competes in.
While she is extremely driven in her quest for success in the pool, Taylor enjoys her time hanging out with friends and tries to encourage them in their own pursuits. Having grown up in Anna Bay on the NSW coast and as a water sports person, it is not surprising that she also loves to go to the beach.
Coach Tom Davis has been a long time mentor and influential figure throughout Taylor’s quickly escalating career. She uses Tom’s guidance and the achievements of contemporary Australian swimmers Geoff Huegill, Andrew Lauterstein and Libby Trickett as motivation and inspiration.
Taylor’s simple goal for the future is to be the best she can be. She believes this attitude can carry her towards more personal best times and hopefully one day, a Paralympic.
