Dawn Fraser's About

[]

Dawn Fraser is a former Australian freestyle champion swimmer who won the same Olympic event three times, the women's 100 meters freestyle. She rose to worldwide prominence when she competed in her first Olympic Games in Melbourne in 1956, winning a gold medal in the then-110 yard (now 100 meter) freestyle. Over the years, she went on to win seven additional Olympic medals and six Commonwealth Games gold medals, making her one of Australia's most well-known Olympians. She was well-known for her athletic ability, but she was also well-known for her provocative conduct. She was born into a big family of modest resources and was discovered as a young girl by Sydney coach Harry Gallagher for her swimming abilities. Gallagher began preparing her for greatness, and the young girl quickly rose to become one of the world's most accomplished swimmers. Her trainers and sponsors, on the other hand, were sometimes frustrated by her predilection for misadventure. After being suspected of attempting to steal the Olympic flag during the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, she was suspended for ten years by the Australian Swimming Union, thereby ending her swimming career. Later in life, she pursued a brief political career. Despite her often provocative statements, she is a popular figure in Australia, and she was named First Lady of the Olympic Games for the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
