Taylor McKeown (swimming) competed at her third Commonwealth Games in Birmingham where she reached the final of the 200m breaststroke. Taylor and younger sister Kaylee McKeown were one of two pairs of sisters on the Australian team in Birmingham alongside Maddison Levi and Teagan Levi.
A member of many Australian junior teams, Taylor was selected for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, winning gold in the 200m breaststroke, 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, as well as a fifth placing in the 200m, then another world championship medley relay bronze in 2017.
Despite selection for the Gold Coast Commonwealth 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.
Taylor announced her retirement from competitive swimming after the Birmingham Games.
