AUSTRALIA’S NEWEST SWIMMING STAR
Kyle Chalmers, dubbed ‘King Kyle’ by the Australian media, is already one of Australia’s most exciting and successful athletes.
Kyle’s athleticism and natural ability saw him excel at several sports throughout his childhood but swimming soon became his sole focus. It was Kyle’s Olympic debut that cemented his position as a real contender on the swimming world stage. At just 18 years of age, Kyle became the first Australian in 48 years to win gold in the men’s 100m Freestyle at the 2016 Olympic Games. At the same Games, Kyle collected an additional two bronze medals and he returned home a household name.
In 2018, Kyle Chalmers proved he was no one hit wonder, claiming his first long course Australian Championship Titles in the men’s 100m and 200m Freestyle. Following this success, Kyle went on to win four Gold and a Silver medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.
