One of Australia’s most successful ever swimmers, Susie O’Neill holds a record 35 Australian titles, 8 Olympic medals and a string of victories at the World Championships and Commonwealth Games. After narrowly missing selection as a fourteen year old for the 1988 Seoul Olympics, Susie’s career took off at the 1990 Commonwealth games with gold and silver medals. Incredibly, Susie never came home without a medal from any international competition, a streak stretching from 1990 to 2000. Susie came of age at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, a gold, silver and bronze medal; she was Australia’s most outstanding Olympic performer since Shane Gould in 1972 and the first Australian female swimming Olympic gold medallist since 1980.

In September 1998 Susie was brilliant at the Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur where she won a record eight medals including six gold. Susie won ten gold medals at Commonwealth Games, the most ever for an Australian while her six gold in KL is a record for the most gold won at a single Commonwealth Games. At Sydney 2000 Susie affirmed herself as one of Australia’s all time greats. One gold and three silver. Susie has eight Olympic medals, equalling Dawn Fraser’s Australian record of the biggest medal aggregate.

With nothing left to prove in the pool on the international stage, Susie retired from competitive swimming and after earning an appointment as a member of the IOC set about instilling some of her champion qualities into the Olympic movement.

In 2005 Susie resigned from the IOC to spend more time at home with her young family. Revered by all generations and known for her feats in the pool, charity work, humility and down to earth nature. Susie now juggles her role as a full-time mum to Alix and William, with sponsor, charity and media commitments. Susie also enjoys keeping fit and healthy by swimming, boxing and taking Pilate classes each week; and has recently taken up Triathlons.
