Biography

A multiple Olympic and World Champion, Michael Klim is part of the star-studded group that has taken Australia back to the top of world swimming.

Named Australia Swimming Rookie of The Year in 1995, Klim won a bronze medal at the Atlanta Olympics.

His star continued to rise in 1997 when he took the World Record in the 100-metre butterfly on the way to being named World Swimmer of The Year.

At the 1998 FINA World Championships in Perth, Klim's record haul of seven medals in seven events including four gold rates as one of the most outstanding performances by an Australian at an international swim meet.

The 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur saw Klim exert his dominance, winning seven medals including four gold once again.

Klim was one of the undisputed stars of the Sydney Games with two gold and two silver. He was instrumental in the Australians' thrilling 4x100m relay victory, unleashing a world record lead off swim to win his first gold on the first night. Klim later helped smash the world record in the 4x200m relay to win a second Gold.

A most marketable athlete Michael has been used very successfully in brand building and awareness programs and his image remains one of the most dynamic in Australian sport.
