 Nicole Livingstone - MC
 Beginning on the Australian Swimming Team at just 13, Nicole Livingstone will go down  in history as one of Australia’s most successful female backstrokers. 
 With an international sporting career spanning 12 years, Nicole’s achievements include  three medals from three Olympic appearances; 6 gold, 2 silver and a bronze from three Commonwealth Games and competing in six Pan Pacific Championships, winning 4 gold 2 silver and 1 bronze medals. She also broke a world record in the 200m backstroke (short course) in 1992. 
Nicole placed her name in the record books with the longest winning sequence of any Australian swimmer in history at the national titles winning ten consecutive 100m backstroke titles between 1987 and 1996, a record still unbroken today. 
Upon retiring from swimming, Nicole began a long career in media in a variety of roles – from sports commentary at events like the Olympics and Commonwealth Games to hosting big name shows - ‘Wide World of Sports’, ‘Any Given Sunday’ and ‘The Project’.
A great ambassador for Australian sport, Nicole has received many awards during her career outside of the pool. These include the Medal of the Order of Australia, the Australian Sports Medal and she is also a member of the Victorian Women’s Honour Roll.
