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.

In 2018 at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, Cate was dominant in the pool winning three gold medals in the 50m freestyle, 50m butterfly with a Commonwealth Games record time and in the 4x100m freestyle whilst also setting a world record time in the relay. Cate also just narrowly missed out in the 100m freestyle to her sister winning a silver medal. Cate continued to excel in 2018 at the Pan Pacific Championships winning an incredible 5 gold medals in the 50m and 100m freestyle, 4x100m freestyle, 4x100m medley and the 4x100m mixed medley.

At the 2019 World Championships in Gwangju, Cate continued winning medals obtaining two gold, two silver and a bronze medal adding to the substantial medal tally. At the inaugural International Swimming League (ISL) for the London Roar, Cate has demonstrated her class for her team helping them be very successful at each event with the Roar at the top of their group.

She hopes after her career she is able to combine her love of sport and media post completion of her Bachelor of Communications. Cate is also trying to raise awareness about skin cancer after being diagnosed with stage one Melanoma in a mole she had removed, urging others to get regular check ups.
