Emma McKeon is an Australian Olympic swimmer who is best known for her dominance in the 100m freestyle, 200m freestyle, and 100m butterfly. Over the past few years, McKeon has established herself as an world-class competitor, receiving four silvers and two bronze medals at the 2017 World Championships.

Being raised by former Olympic athletes – in her mother Susie, father Ron and uncle Rob – Emma has had her eyes on success from a young age. Emma was born and raised in Wollongong, NSW, and has grown up alongside older brother and current Olympic swimmer, David McKeon. 2010 saw Emma’s international breakthrough as she dominated the world stage across three major appearances. Across the Junior Pan Pacific Championships, the Youth Olympics and the World Short Course Championships, Emma collected an outstanding gold, four silvers, and three bronzes through several events.

After narrowly missing out on selection in the 2012 London Olympics, McKeon took some time away from swimming to re-asses her position. However soon after, Emma returned to her dominance and claimed silver in the 4x100m freestyle relay in the 2013 World Championships in Barcelona.

2014 saw Emma’s best career performance yet. At the 2014 Commonwealth Games, McKeon took out four gold medals and two bronze medals, throwing herself into the Australian sporting spotlight.

At the 2016 Rio Olympics, Emma formed part of the all-conquering 4x100m freestyle relay team that not only took out gold, but broke their own formerly-set world record. On top of her gold medal, Emma also collected two silvers and one bronze and consequently was titled Australia’s most successful Olympian during those games.

Emma performed exceptionally well at 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games under the help and guidance of her coach, Michael Bohl. Taking home gold in the 100m butterfly, 4x 100m freestyle, 4x 200m freestyle, and 4x 100m medley. In addition to this, Emma claimed Bronze in the 200m butterfly and 200m freestyle.
