Greenwood was selected to compete at her first international event – the 2017 IPC World Championships in Mexico – when she was just 12 years old.

Known as ‘Jas’ among her Dolphin teammates, she has since gone from strength to strength, achieving positive results in the pool. In her debut outing at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the rising star placed a commendable fifth overall in two events – the Women’s 100m Breaststroke (SB9) and the Women’s 200m Individual Medley (SM10). In the same year, Greenwood claimed two bronze medals at the Para Pan Pacs in Cairns.

Currently training under Bob McEvoy and representing Bay & Basin, Greenwood achieved her goal of making the Australian Paralympic team in 2021 and will compete in Tokyo after a successful Australian Swimming Trials winning gold in the women’s SM10 200m Individual Medal (breaking the Australian record) and 100m Butterfly, silver in the MC 100m Backstroke and bronze in the MC 100m Free.
