Gregory Brough

Greg Brough (swimming) was a long distance freestyle specialist who won bronze at the 1968 Mexico Olympics in the 1500m as a 17-year-old. At the 1970 Games in Edinburgh, Brough won bronze in the 400m freestyle behind teammate Graham White. Taking up swimming on doctors’ advice after suffering a severe staph infection as a child, Brough became the Gold Coast’s first Olympian, after starting swimming in the 25m pool his father built at the family-owned ‘The Highway Oasis’ in Mermaid Beach. Brough won state and national titles as a member of the Surfers Paradise Surf Lifesaving Club and was inducted in the Gold Coast Hall of Fame in 1999. Greg Brough passed away on 10 March 2014 at the age of 63.
