EPISODE 10: Nicole Livingstone

Before becoming a trailblazer in the female sport commentary world, Nicole Livingstone was blitzing it in the pool for Australia.

At just 15-years-old Livingstone made her multi-sport debut at the Edinburgh 1986 Commonwealth Games, hardly forgettable after winning a ballot to meet the Queen.

She was a shining light for Australia, winning six Gold medals at three Commonwealth Games and silver and bronze at two Olympics.

A great ambassador for Australian sport, Livingstone has received many other awards during her career outside the pool. Including the Medal of the Order of Australia in June 1997 and the Australian Sports Medal in July 2000.

She helped found Ovarian Cancer Australia with her sister Karen Livingstone after their mother passed away from the disease and on this episode of Gold Coast Gold opens up about her diagnosis with the BRCA2 gene.
