Bullying left in wake as top swimmer prepares for Commonwealth Games


One of Wellington’s top swimmers left bullying and injury in her wake to make the cut for this year’s Commonwealth Games.

Bronagh Ryan, 24, is the only female swimmer from Wellington asked to represent New Zealand at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in April.

The highs and lows of 2017 came thick and fast for the Porirua City Aquatics member. They began with a knee injury, then bullying, but ended with setting a New Zealand open record.
