Australian swimmer Kyle Chalmers has a major reason to be proud, he won three gold medals and a silver at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Chalmers won first place in the men’s 100 meter freestyle race with a time of 47.51 seconds, and he was a part of the 4 × 100 meter freestyle relay, which also won the gold with a time of 3:11.12, thus setting a new Commonwealth Games record.

The men’s Australian swimming team (Bradley Woodward, Zac Stubblety-Cook, Matthew Temple, and Chalmers) also claimed the silver medal in the men’s 4 × 100 meter medley relay with a time of 3:31.88, finishing right behind Great Britain (3:31.80).

Finally, in the 4 × 100 mixed freestyle relay, the Australian team (William Yang, Chalmers, Mollie O’Callaghan, and Emma McKeon) came in first place with a time of 3:21.18, yet another Commonwealth Games record.

All hail King Kyle. He was able to find the means to go beyond the ordinary, and he overcame adversity to rightfully triumph at these Commonwealth Games. Hopefully, this is a harbinger of more great things to come from this Aussie superstar swimmer in the future.

“A million things I could say, but this photo sums them all up and says it perfectly… thank you all for the support and giving me the courage and strength to stand back up and do that tonight! That one was for you guys.. much love Kyle!” Chalmers in an effusive post on Instagram.

Earlier this summer, at the World Aquatics Championships in Budapest, Chalmers and his Australian teammates won the mixed 4 × 100 meters freestyle relay with an incredible time of 3:19.38, shattering a new world record.
