Kyle Chalmers OAM

Kyle Chalmers OAM is one of the nation’s most accomplished and recognisable sportsman who has established himself as Australia’s Golden Boy in the pool. As a Commonwelath Games and Olympic swimming champion, he inspires audiences through his efforts and achievements both in and out of the swimming pool.

Kyle made his Australian swim team debut at the 2015 World Swimming Championships. A year later, at just 18 years old, he won the gold medal in the men’s 100 metres freestyle at the Rio Olympics, setting a new junior world record. In 2021, at his second Olympic Games in Tokyo, Kyle took home silver in the men's 100 metres freestyle.

Outside of his sporting achievements, Kyle is passionate about water safety. He’s an ambassador for VACSWIM, a program that helps prevent drownings, and encourages kids to be safe in the water.

Kyle is also involved in several community events, including volunteering with the Salvation Army, educating against racism through ‘Enough is Enough’, and supporting and promoting the FightMND foundation – a charity that works to raise funds to find effective treatments and a potential cure for Motor Neurone Disease.
