Nicole's Story

Nicole Livingstone dominated Australian backstroking during her career, winning nine consecutive national titles in the women’s 100m event. She made her Olympic debut in Seoul in 1988, competing in three events. Four years later, her bronze medal in the women’s 200m backstroke in Barcelona was Australia’s first woman’s backstroke medal since 1948, and only its third in the history of the Games. Livingstone also showed her versatility, class and spirit as a relay swimmer. In 1996, at her third and final Games, she won medals in both the women’s 4x100m medley relay (silver) and 4x200m freestyle relay (bronze). In all, she competed in 11 Olympic events – an outstanding achievement. Livingstone has since enjoyed a successful media career, including work as a swimming broadcaster.
