Quadruple Olympic Gold Medallist
Libby Trickett first swam her way into Australian hearts back in 2004, quickly becoming as famous for her beaming smile as she did for her record breaking swims.
Her vivacious, girl next-door personality is in stark contrast to the fierce determination she demonstrated in the pool. Libby's dedication and drive saw her make a triumphant return from retirement to qualify for her third Olympic Games in 2012, adding to her impressive medal tally with her fourth Olympic Gold medal. Libby's enormous contribution to Australian Swimming was duly recognised when she received a Medal of the Order of Australia in 2005.
Libby's positivity and devotion to living life to its fullest has made her the ideal ambassador for a range of charities and companies, where she has inspired and empowered many to be the best they can be.
Since retiring from competitive swimming in 2013 Libby has been inundated with media opportunities and now calls the Today Show home, as their resident Health & Wellbeing reporter.
A spirited young woman, champion athlete, revered community figure, media personality and loving wife, Libby Trickett is an inspirational role model who, even with overwhelming success has remained humble and grounded.
