Melton twins Jaime-Lee and Patrick Getson are set for stellar swimming careers.
The 16-year-olds have represented Victoria at several national swimming competitions, hold number one titles and have represented Australia at international competitions.
Their dedication and commitment to swimming was recognised at a Victorian school sports awards ceremony last week.
The siblings, who attend Melton Specialist School, are among 51 junior athletes to be awarded a sporting blue medal – the highest sporting accolade presented by the public school system.
Their mum, Leanne Getson-Ballan, said her children worked tirelessly, with Jaime-Lee recently making it into the world top 10 in the 100-metre backstroke.
“Both Patrick and Jaime-Lee have been honoured to represent their state for the past two years,” Ms Getson-Ballan said.
“They have been nominated again for this year’s state team for the Pacific School Games later in the year.”
Education Minister James Merlino congratulated the “talented young athletes”.
