Taylor McKeown

Taylor McKeown will be competing in the 200m breaststroke for the third time at a Commonwealth Games after finishing third at the 2022 Australian championships. Taylor enjoyed swimming at school, but later joined squad so she could improve. She claimed her first national titles in the 100m and 200m breaststroke aged 15 and has claimed multiple titles since. A member of many Australian junior teams, she was selected for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, winning gold in the 200m, then claimed bronze as part of the 4x100m medley relay at the Kazan 2015 World Championships. Silver in that event followed at the Rio 2016 Olympics, with a fifth placing in the 200m race, then another world championship medley relay bronze in 2017. Despite selection for the Gold Coast Games, 2018 was a difficult year. Taylor suffered a number of health issues, including a knee injury, broke with her coach of 13 years Chris Mooney and found out that her father has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. She joined Michael Bohl’s squad in early 2019 but lost her dad Sholto in 2020.
