Achievements

Madi Wilson grew up in rural Queensland. Her grandparents owned a swimming centre so it was only fitting that she began swimming. She broke onto the scene in 2012 making the team for the Junior Pan Pacific Championships and in the following year, she competed at the World University Games where she claimed gold in the 200m backstroke. She made the senior Dolphins team in 2014 at the Commonwealth Games and claimed a silver in the 50m backstroke. At the 2015 World Championships she touched behind teammate Emily Seebohm in the 100m backstroke to claim silver. She went on to qualify for her first Olympic team in 2016 where she placed 8th in the 100m backstroke and was a heat swimmer in the 4x100m freestyle and the 4x100m medley relays that went on to win gold and silver respectively. In 2019, Wilson competed at the World Championships held in Gwangju and was a member of the gold medal winning women's 4x200m freestyle relay, setting a new world record in the process.
