Multiple Olympic gold medalist Cate Campbell is one of Australia’s greatest ever performers in the pool, notching up world records and capturing the nation’s affection with her down-to-earth personality. A multiple world record holder with both individual and team accolades, Campbell continues to assert her dominance both domestically and internationally.

Cate’s dominance in the pool began since age 13, winning two gold medals at the Australian Age Championships before showing tremendous maturity at her first Olympic Games as a 16-year-old in Beijing 2008. There, she won a bronze medal in the 50m freestyle, before teaming up to win bronze in 4x100m freestyle relay.

Four years on at London 2012, Cate won gold in the 4x100m freestyle. Unfortunately, her games success was hindered her chance to perform to her capability in the remaining events.

At the 2013 World Championships in Barcelona, she proved her class as she claimed the 100m freestyle title. In 2014, she continued her dominance in the pool claiming three Commonwealth Games gold medals in the 100m freestyle, 4 x 100m freestyle and 4 x 100m medley relays, as well as a silver medal in the 50m freestyle.

Cate went on to share the 100m freestyle podium with her sister Bronte at the 2015 World Championships in Russia, taking bronze before anchoring the women’s 4 x 100m freestyle team to victory. In 2016 Cate broke the 100m freestyle world record at a Grand Prix event in Brisbane, the perfect preparation one month out from the Rio Olympic Games.

In Rio, Cate won gold in the 4x100m freestyle as the Australians broke their own world record in the process. Cate anchored the 4x100m medley relay team in a competitive field and managed to take the team from 5th place to 2nd claiming the silver medal. In 2017 at the Australian Short Course Championships, she set a 100m freestyle short course world record.

She hopes after her career she is able to combine her love of sport and media post completion of her Bachelor of Communications.
