Bronte Campbell is the current 50m and 100m Freestyle World Champion, she took out both titles at the 2015 World Championships in Russia, becoming only the third female in history to be crowned a dual 50m-100m champion. Having spent most of her life chasing sister Cate, Bronte has emerged as a swimming superstar and has positioned herself as one of the fastest female swimmers in the world.
In 2014 at the Commonwealth Games, Bronte was a member of two Gold medal relay teams including the world record-breaking 4x100m Freestyle relay team. Bronte also brought home two individual medals with a Bronze in the 50m Freestyle and Silver in the 100m Freestyle. Earlier this year at the National Championships Bronte claimed her first senior Australian title in the 50m Freestyle, finally edging out her arch rival, and sister, Cate.
At the 2016 Rio Olympics Bronte was a member of the all conquering 4x100m Freestyle relay team who won Gold in blistering pace which broke their own World Record which they set in 2014. Bronte also qualified for the 100m Final and narrowly missed out on a medal placing 4th by .05 of a second. On the final night of competition Bronte swam in the 50m Freestyle final where she touched the wall in 7th.
Bronte trains in Brisbane alongside her sister, under the guidance of long time coach Simon Cusack.
