Cate Campbell OAM (swimming) is a six-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist and one of the most decorated swimmers in Australian Commonwealth Games history. After missing the 2010 Commonwealth Games due to injury, Campbell debuted at the Glasgow 2014 Games winning gold in the 100m freestyle, her pet event. She would add gold medals as part of Australia’s 4x100m freestyle and 4x100m medley relay teams, and a silver in the 50m freestyle. She returned at the Gold Coast 2018 Games to again win gold in the 4x100m freestyle relay teams, the individual 50m freestyle and butterfly titles and finished second behind younger sister Bronte Campbell in the 100m freestyle event. A three-time Olympian, Campbell debuted as a 16-year-old at the Beijing 2008 Olympics, winning two bronze medals. At the London 2012 Olympics, Campbell won Olympic gold as part of Australia’s 4x100m freestyle relay team, joining the team again to defend their title at the Rio 2016 Olympics, her second career Olympic gold, adding silver as part of Australia’s 4x100m medley team. In November 2018, Campbell revealed she had been diagnosed with a stage one melanoma that developed in a mole she had had her whole life and had to get it removed. She urged her fans to get regular skin checks and has since been praised for raising awareness of skin cancer.
