Interesting Facts

  • Born in Victoria, Jaele Patrick's talent has taken her across the other side of the world where she attends college in Texas as she boosts her diving and academic credentials. She moved to the USA on a sports scholarship at Texas A&M University where she is completing her Bachelor of Business in Communications & Sports Management. Patrick's victory in the 3m at the 2012 NCAA Championships, against the best college divers from around the country, was the first diving title for the Texas A&M program. The college was also home to current Australian diver Grant Nel.
  • After taking out the 2006 Australian Junior Championship title in the 3m event, and winning bronze in the 1m, Patrick competed at the World University Games in Bangkok.
  • She gained selection for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, and showed her progression in the sport as she won bronze in both the 3m and the 3m synchro with Olivia Wright. She also finished just outside the medals in the 1m, claiming 4th.
  • Patrick returned home off the back of her breakthrough victory at the NCAA Championships to finish 2nd behind Sharleen Stratton in the 3m springboard event at the Olympic nomination trials.
