[Matt Levy is headed to the Maccabiah Games this year. ]
Four-time Paralympian, dual gold medallist and world record holder Matt Levy will be competing for Australia at the 2017 Maccabiah Games in Israel.
Levy, who has cerebral palsy, has already broken a world record in the 200 metre freestyle this year.
“It is an honour to be asked to go to these games to represent Australia,” Levy said.
Levy made his debut for Australia as a 15-year-old and has been swimming competitively ever since.
He won a gold medal at the London 2012 Paralympics as part of Australia’s 4x100m freestyle relay team and a gold medal at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games in the 4x100m medley relay event.
