Australian sporting greats reveal family tragedy


Former swimming champ Curry, and Ironman great Kenny, both 57, announced the tragic news in a statement today, saying that it was with “a heavy heart” they confirmed their “beautiful daughter Jaimi” had lost her battle with a long-term illness.

Paying tribute to his daughter, Kenny said Jaimi had “passed away peacefully in hospital this morning in the company of loving family”.

“Jaimi will forever be remembered as a caring, bright and loving soul who always put others before herself,” he said in the statement.

“Our hearts are broken and the pain is immense but we must move forward cherishing every wonderful moment we got to share with our treasured first child.

“We thank the incredible team at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital for their tireless commitment to making her better and giving us as the extra time we were able to spend with her.

“It goes without saying that this is a very difficult time for family and friends and we trust we will all be allowed to grieve in privacy.”
