Bronte Campbell

Bronte Campbell and older sister Cate were the first Australian sisters to compete in the same event at the same Olympics at the London 2012 Games, where Bronte finished fourth in her semi-final of the 50m freestyle to miss the final by 0.23 seconds, placing her 10th overall.

Four years later in Rio the siblings won gold together in the 4x100m freestyle relay. The relay team of Emma McKeon, Brittany Elmslie, Bronte and Cate broke the world record to be crowned Olympic Champions in a time of 3:30.65, bettering Australia's previous world-best mark of 3:30.98 set at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

In her individual events Bronte finished fourth in the 100m freestyle and seventh in the 50m freestyle. 

Bronte was only the third swimming in history to take the 50m and 100m freestyle double at a World Championships when she won in 2015. Bronte and Cate also became the first family to stand on a podium together as individuals in swimming history when Cate placed third behind Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrom in the 100m.

The Malawi born athlete is one of five siblings and took up competitive swimming when she moved to Australia in 2001 at age seven. She hopes to follow her passion in sports media after her swimming career.
