Injuries She battled illness at times in 2005 as well as having her tonsils out which forced her out of the pool for several weeks.
Other Despite battling illness in 2005, Brooke still managed a successful year with a bronze medal and a personal best in the 50m breaststroke at the World Championships in Montreal, and three gold and two silver medals at the 2005 Australian Short Course Championships.

It was 2004 that ended in a blaze of glory for Brooke, winning a record six gold medals at the World Short Course Championships in Indianapolis.

Earlier in the year she took out the 200m IM and finished second in the 50 and 100m breaststroke at the Telstra Trials.

She competed in her first race - a Freestyle event - at the age of five, which she won despite swimming breaststroke.

She missed selection for the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games by a mere 0.11 seconds.
