Bronte is an Olympic, Commonwealth and World swimming champion. A dominant force on the world 50m & 100m freestyle scene for the past six years, her focus is on more Olympic success in Tokyo.

Bio

The second of five Campbell children, Bronte was born in Malawi and swam in Lake Malawi as a child after her mother Jenny – a former synchronised swimmer – taught her to swim.

Bronte was inspired to take up competitive swimming after watching the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games and her love affair with the water continued when the Campbells moved to Australia in 2001. Seven year-old Bronte and her older sister Cate joined the local Indooroopilly Swimming Club in Brisbane and threw themselves into the sport.

By 2011, Bronte was announcing herself as a future star of the pool, winning Gold in the 50m Freestyle at the FINA World Junior Championships. She then secured selection for the 2012 London Olympics, where she made the Semi Finals in the 50m freestyle as an 18 year old.

2013 saw Bronte team up with Cate to win a World Championships Silver Medal in the 4 x 100m Freestyle relay, with two more Silvers to follow at the Short-Course World Championships of 2014.

Her first golden moments came at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow with victory in the 4 x 100m Freestyle and 4 x 100m medley events.

 

Her Commonwealth haul of two Gold, one Silver and one Bronze gave Campbell the confidence to take on the world and she starred at the 2015 World Championships, winning three Gold medals (50m Freestyle, 100m Freestyle & 4 x 100m Freestyle) to establish herself as one of the world’s premier freestyle sprinters.

Bronte won her first Olympic gold in Rio the following year as part of Australia’s world record-breaking 4 x 100m Freestyle team.

A home Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018 proved to be an unforgettable experience as Bronte collected another 3 Golds and a Silver, including a memorable win over sister Cate in the 100m Freestyle to go with victories in the 4 x 100m Freestyle and 4 x 100m medley.

She continued her success at the 2019 World Championships, adding another two Golds and a Silver to her already-stacked trophy cabinet.

Bronte has also played an important role in the establishment of the International Swimming League (ISL) for her team the London Roar, as they topped their group in the inaugural season.

In June of 2021, Bronte qualified for her third Olympic Games in Tokyo. With Australia still holding the World Record in the 4 x 100m relay, they are favourite to take out the Gold Medal in this event and continue to challenge their own World Record.

Out of the pool, Bronte is studying Journalism and has a passion for a career in radio. She also writes her own poetry and enjoys the Bondi lifestyle of the beach and live music.

Bronte is an ambassador for Carers Australia, playing an important role for their National Carers Week, annually in October.

This partnership stems from her mother Jenny being a full time carer for brother Hamish, who has severe cerebral palsy. Bronte also participates in the Chappell Foundation Sleep at the SCG event in support of Homelessness.

 

To meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two impostors just the same.

Testimonials

I often said COVID would define a lot of people, and amongst the many who were effected were Australias elite athletes, many who had their Tokyo dreams snatched from them. And yet I clearly remember Bronte Campbell, not allowing in disappointment because she couldnt train or compete, but instead reaching out to people who she thought she might be able to help or support. To me that defines the type of person Ive always known Bronte to be, super committed, super motivated, but never to the detriment of others.
