Kylie is the baby of the 53-strong swimming team and only recently turned 16. She will represent Australia at senior level for the first time at the Games.

She represented Australia at the 2005 Australian Youth Olympic Festival and also at three Trans Tasman Series throughout her career.

She won a gold, two silver and a bronze at the 2005 FINA World Cup and was a double bronze medallist at the Australian Short Course Championships.

She finished fourth in the 200m Butterfly and won her first ever National open long course medal when she came third in the 400m Freestyle at the Telstra Trials in Melbourne, 2006.

She is particularly excited about marching in the Opening Ceremony at the Commonwealth Games.
