Biography

Tracey Wickham is one of our National Treasures. She is just as captivating today as she was during her reign as Australia's Premium Sports Personality - wiser, and seemingly just as youthful.

In the ultra-competitive world of elite swimming, it is hard to imagine anyone holding a benchmark World Record for almost ten years. To dominate two such world records for that period is an achievement worth remembering ... and sharing!

Her impact started when, at thirteen, she became the youngest member of the Australia Olympic Team. Tracey's spell binding presentations reflect briefly on many of her life's achievements.

- Five times World Record holder
- Dual World Champion
- Four times Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist
- ABC Australian Sportsman of the Year - 1978
- MBE - Awarded for Services to Sport
- Inducted into Australian Sporting Hall of Fame 1986
- Inducted International Swimming Hall of Fame 1992, Florida USA
- Committee member - Olympic Task Force 2000
- Australian Sports Foundation - Board Member
- OAM - Awarded in 2005 for Community Service in teaching children and giving motivational talks to children living in rural areas.

As a role model for young athletes, a fierce defender of family values or an educator on goal setting and positive attitudes, Tracey's experiences provide inspiration ... and sobering thoughts.
