South coast swimmer Jasmine Greenwood has completed a successful Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

The 13-year-old competed in the SB9 100 metres breaststroke and SM10 200m individual medley at the competition.

Up first for Greenwood, from Bay and Basin Swim Club, was the 200m IM, where she placed fifth in a time of 2:34.97, a personal best time.

The event was won by New Zealand’s Sophie Pascoe in a time of 2:27.72.

The Sussex Inlet resident then returned to the pool for the breaststroke, where she also finished fifth.

Like the medley, the breaststroke was won by Pascoe, with Australia’s Paige Leonhardt and Madeleine Scott claiming silver and bronze respectively.

Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Greenwood’s performances was the fact she was forced to miss two weeks of training after suffering facial injuries in a scooter accident in early February.
