Dawn Fraser Biography

Dawn Fraser was born on September 4, 1937 and is an Australian champion swimmer. She is one of only two swimmers to win the same Olympic event three times, in her case, the 100 meters freestyle.

Within Australia, she is known for her controversial behaviour and larrikin character as much as for her athletic ability.

Fraser won eight Olympic medals, including four gold medals, and six Commonwealth Games gold medals. She also held 39 records. The 100 meters freestyle record was hers for 15 years from December 1, 1956 to January 8, 1972.

She is the first of only two swimmers in Olympic history to win individual gold medals for the same event at three successive Olympics (100 meters freestyle - 1956, 1960, 1964).

In October 1962, she became the first woman to swim 100 meters freestyle in less than one minute.  It was not until 1973, eight years after Fraser retired, that this record was broken.

 It was not until 1973, eight years after Fraser retired, that this record was broken.

During the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Fraser angered swimming team sponsors and the Australian Swimming Union (ASU) by marching in the opening ceremony against their wishes, wearing an older swimming costume because it was more comfortable than the one supplied by the sponsors, and allegedly climbing a flagpole at Emperor Hirohitos palace to steal the Olympic flag.  In 1965, the ASU placed Fraser under a ten-year ban, to which she responded by announcing her retirement.
