Tears flow after McKeown’s sensational Olympic gold

By Tanayah Wakefield

Kaylee McKeown’s stunning gold medal swim in the Olympic 100m Backstroke final this morning brought a former coach to tears.

Redcliffe-born McKeown was in the middle of the pack at half-way, but up to second as the finish approached and stormed past Canadian Kylie Masse in the final few strokes to touch first.

Jodie Morgan, who was McKeown’s junior development coach at Australian Crawl in Burpengary, said: “Tears flowed at the finish.

‘So emotional’

“It was so emotional. This is the most elite you can get.

“There was relief and joy after everything she has had to deal with in the preparations.

“Losing her dad (in 2020), breaking the world record in the trials, the media interest, the pressure and expectation.

“So much pressure on a 20-year-old … and she dealt with it.”
