Kokoda Crash

Chloe's Story

Chloe was an excellent swimmer & proud of it. She was a resilient & courageous woman who wished to compete in the Olympics, but a tragic car-crash left her in a hospital bed with a severely injured head, stomach & leg. The doctors told her that it would take her up to 10 months to recover.

Chloe was heartbroken, but determined to prove the doctors wrong. She decided to take her dad and join in the Kokoda Track, a grueling 96km walk through jungle & forest. Even though the pain in her body was excruciating, she persisted & managed what few could do in full health.

Chloe hopes to fully recover soon & continue to train as an Australian swimmer.
