Alicia Coutts Olympic Swimmer Alicia Coutts will run junior clinics to coach and inspire young swimmers of the future.
Making her debut at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, Coutts would go on to compete at two more Olympic Games, two World Championships, two Commonwealth Games and two Pan Pacific Championships as part of the Australian Dolphins Swim team. With a total of ten national long course titles to her name across four different events, Coutts’ versatility in the pool became obvious, and her national success soon translated to the world stage with medals won in the 100m butterfly, 200m individual medley, 4×100 and 4x200m freestyle relays and the 4x100m medley
Dubbed the ‘Delhi-Golden Girl’ after winning five gold medals at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, Coutts created a reputation for herself as a gutsy swimmer, a master of many strokes and a must have for a number of relay teams. This success continued into 2011 where she won silver in the 100m butterfly and 200m individual medley and bronze in the 4x100m medley relay at the Shanghai World Championships. Then at her second Olympic Games In London 2012 Coutts wrote her name in the history books and joined an elite group as one of only three swimmers to win five medals at a single Olympics – joining Shane Gould and Ian Thorpe. Coutts’ five-medal haul from London came in the form of bronze in the 100m butterfly, silver in the 200m individual medley, 4x200m freestyle relay and the 4x100m medley relay and she capped it off with a gold medal in the women’s 4x100m freestyle relay. This outstanding achievement was credit to the hard work and dedication Coutts had applied to her training in the lead up to the Games and a testament to her ‘toughness’.
