Achievements

At just 16 Campbell made her Olympic debut at the 2008 Beijing Games and claimed two bronze medals. Since then, Campbell has represented Australia at four Olympics, two Commonwealth Games, four World Championships and three Pan Pacific Championships. At the 2018 Pan Pacs in Tokyo, the Malawi-born freestyler took home a whopping five gold medals and in the following year at the World Championships, she claimed two gold, two silver and an individual bronze. At the 2020 Tokyo Games, Campbell was part of the Women's 4x100m Freestyle Relay which smashed their own world record to secure gold, while also achieving an individual bronze in the 100m freestyle and another gold in the Women's 4x100m Medley Relay. Anchoring the medley relay, Campbell, in true Campbell style, pushed herself to the wall to triumph for the team and break the Olympic record. The Dolphins leader holds 23 international gold medals, one world record and three commonwealth records.
