Aussie swimming legend to host VIC industry awards dinner

Published: 5 August 2019

AMCA Victoria is excited to announce that Australian Swimming legend, Nicole Livingstone, will be the host at this year's Industry Dinner and Training Achievement Awards

Selected for the Australian Swimming Team at age 13, Nicole is one of Australia's most successful female swimmers.

Over twelve years as an international swimmer, Nicole competed and medalled at every major swimming championship.

She has one silver and two bronze medals from three consecutive Olympic Games, won six gold, two silver and a bronze from three Commonwealth Games; and competed in six Pan Pacific Championships for a haul of four gold, two silver and a bronze.

She also broke the world record in the 200m backstroke short course in 1992 and continues to hold the record for the longest winning sequence at the Australian National Championships with ten consecutive 100m backstroke titles between 1987 and 1996.

Upon retiring from swimming, Nicole began her media career as a commentator for events including the Olympics and Commonwealth Games.  She has since hosted a variety of programs including Wide World of Sports, Any Given Sunday and The Project.

A great ambassador for Australian sport, Nicole has received many awards outside of the pool, including the Medal of the Order of Australia and the Australian Sports Medal. 

She is also a member of the Victorian Women's Honour Roll, for which she is now a Patron. 

As Master of Ceremonies for this year's industry dinner, Nicole is the perfect person to introduce us to this year's crop of winners for the AMCA Training Achievement Awards.
