A swimming icon, Leisel created Olympic history becoming the first Australian swimmer to qualify for her fourth Olympic Games and soon became one of Australia’s most celebrated athletes.
Leisel won the hearts of the Australian public as she claimed 14 individual world records, 9 Olympic medals, 7 World Championship titles, 10 Commonwealth Games Gold medals and 23 National titles over her brilliant career. Along with Ian Thorpe, Leisel holds the record for the most Olympic medals won by any Australian and is regarded as one of the world’s greatest ever female swimmers.
Leisel’s determination in the pool, her ability to perform under pressure and her positive attitude and honesty has earned her international praise. In 2006, Leisel was named World Swimming Magazine’s Swimmer of the Year and at the 2006 Commonwealth Games Leisel became the first woman in history to complete the 50mB, 100mB and 200mB treble, was named Swimmer of the Meet and was honoured to be selected as the 427-strong Australian team flag bearer at the Closing Ceremony.
Leisel retired from swimming in 2012 and now brings her brilliance to the stage as an inspirational corporate speaker and health and lifestyle icon, sharing her amazing story of personal growth and success.
