After attending a ‘come and try’ day for Artistic Swimming at her local pool, Jane Fruzynski knew that this was the sport for her.
Growing up in Perth, WA Fruzynski joined the West Coast Splash Synchronised Swimming Club and hasn't looked back.
While she has been fortunate to avoid injuries in her career thus far, she has found the mental side of sport to present the biggest challenge. However, over her career she has been able to build her confidence and learn to keep an open mindset when it comes to competing.
This growth mindset was largely influenced by her junior club coach who always showed unwavering support and belief, especially at times when Fruzynski didn’t believe in herself.
In 2017, she was a member of the FINA World Championships team where Australia beat Egypt for the first time in six years. Not only was this a long-standing goal for the Australian team, but it was also a personal best score.
Fruzynski was also a part of the 2019 FINA World Championships team, where Australia qualified their spot for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, an achievement she considers to be her career highlight.
The 19-year-old will make her Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020 alongside Rose Stackpole, Amie Thompson, Emily Rogers, Hannah Cross, Rachel Presser, Kiera Gazzard and Kirsten Kinash.
