Outstanding Contribution to Sport Award Award

Congratulations to Nicole Livingstone OAM who has received the Outstanding Contributions to Sport Award for her years of service to sport here in Victoria and Australia.

Three time Olympian, Livingstone was awarded the Outstanding Contribution to Sport Award for her work not only as an athlete but as a presenter and sports commentator.  Livingstone holds the longest winning sequence of any Australian swimmer in history at the national titles, winning 10 consecutive 100m backstroke titles (1987-96). Livingstone was presented the award by 1989 winner of the award and Commonwealth Games gold medallist Steve Monegetthi AM.  Childhood friend, and former teammate, Linley Frame gave Livingstone a touching testimonial.

Nicole’s career achievements include a silver medal and two bronze medals from three Olympic appearances; six gold, two silver and a bronze from three Commonwealth Games and competing in six Pan Pacific Championships winning four gold two silver and one bronze medals.  She also broke a world record in the 200m backstroke (short course) in 1992.


Nicole retired from competitive swimming in 1996 and began what has become a stellar career in television. Firstly with the Nine Network, in a variety of roles; from the host’s chair of their flagship sports programs Wide World of Sports and Sports Saturday, to hosting the Commonwealth Games and as an expert commentator/host with Nine’s Logie award winning swimming and surf life saving coverage.

Nicole is making her mark in the world of business as well, with board positions with VicHealth and the State Sports Centre Trust.  She is a member of the Executive of the Australian Olympic Committee, Victorian Olympic Council Vice President, as well as a Director of Swimming Australia. (

Thank you Nicole, for your outstanding contributions to sport over your career.
