Australian Emma McKeon clinched two more gold medals at the Tokyo Olympics on Sunday, becoming the first female swimmer to win seven medals at a single Games.
The 27-year-old first won the 50-meter freestyle with a time of 23.81 seconds, a new Olympic record, before helping Australia claim gold in the 4×100 medley relay.
The Australians finished with a time of 3 minutes, 51.60 seconds, breaking the previous Olympic record of 3:52.05 set by the US in 2012.
McKeon will return home with four gold medals and three bronze, equaling Soviet gymnast Maria Gorokhovskaya’s record for most medals won by a woman at a singles Games.
The Australian swimmer’s two other gold medals in Tokyo came in the women’s 100-meter freestyle and 4×100-meter freestyle events, while she won bronze in the women’s 100-meter butterfly, 4×200-meter freestyle, and mixed 4×100-meter medley.
She also bagged a gold medal, two silver, and a bronze at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
