Kylie Palmer.

Kylie had her first taste of success in the pool at just 6 years old when she came 3rd in the 25m backstroke event at Brisbane Minis. Over the years Kylie experimented with all four strokes only to discover that freestyle was her strength. Today 200 and 400 freestyle are her main events. Her role in the 4 x 200 freestyle relay helped the team to achieve gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Not surprisingly, Kylie lists this moment as a career highlight. Beijing was the springboard for Kylie and since then she has achieved great results whilst representing Australia.
