Emily Seebohm has been on the Australian National Team for 15 years. She's competed in 4 consecutive Olympics and has 7 Olympic medals in her collection (3 gold, 3 silver, 1 bronze).
Most recently, in Tokyo, she nabbed a Bronze medal in the 200 Backstroke. She won silver at the 2008 Games in the 100 Back and has 3 gold medals as part of Australian relays. Most swimmers don't evolve from the 100 to the 200 but she says she's a sucker for the pain of practice.
Emily swims under Michael Bohl (Ep.176) and 2x Olympic backstroke champion, Kaylee McKeown (Ep. 239), is her new training partner.
