Other In Melissa's career, she has held 14 age group records and six open women's national records.

Melissa took part in eight events at the 2004 Commonwealth Youth Games in Bendigo, Australia. She medalled in every one of them, and walked away with six gold (four individual) and two bronze (one individual).

She was inspired to take up swimming as she enjoyed taking part in watersports and lifesaving when she was seven years old, which influenced her decision to start training with her coach.

She took five gold medals away from the Telkom South African Short Course Championships in 2005.
