Emma McKeon qualified for her first Olympic Games in April 2016 when she won the 100m Butterfly and the 200m Freestyle at the Australian National Championships. It was here that Emma claimed the Australian and Commonwealth record in the 200m Freestyle and at the 2017 World Championships she became the fastest 100m Butterfly swimmer in Australian and Commonwealth history.

Narrowly missing out on selection for the London 2012 Olympic team forced Emma to take some time away from the sport to re-evaluate. It didn’t take long to regain her love of the sport and passion for racing and in 2013 Emma qualified for the World Championships in Barcelona alongside her brother David, bringing home a silver medal in the 4x100m freestyle relay team.

In 2014 Emma burst on to the international swimming scene at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow where she claimed 6 medals from 6 races, four gold and two bronze, earning her the title of Australia’s new darling of the pool. Continuing this form into the 2015 National Championships Emma won two titles in the 200m Freestyle and the 100m Butterfly. Later that year at the 2015 World Championships in Russia Emma formed part of Australia’s dominant 4x100m Freestyle Relay team who won Gold as well as swimming with the 4x100m Medley Relay team who won Bronze.

At the 2016 Rio Olympic Games Emma formed part of the all conquering 4x100m Freestyle relay team who took home the Gold and broke their own World Record. Emma continued to strive in the high pressured environment of the Olympics and claimed another 3 medals including a Bronze in the hotly contested 200m Freestyle and 2 Silvers in the 4x200m Freestyle relay and the 4x100m Medley relay. Emma was Australia’s most successful Olympian from the 2016 Games with 4 medals in total.

Emma and her brother David were born in Wollongong from a rich swimming blood line, their father Ron McKeon swam at two Olympic Games and mother, Susie (formerly Woodhouse) competed at the 1982 Commonwealth Games, while uncle Rob Woodhouse was also an Olympic medallist.

Emma lives and trains in QLD and enjoys spending her spare time outside and at the beach. Her focus is now on training for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
