Libby was one of the stars of the 2005 World Championships in Montreal where she claimed three gold and two silver medals - and her leadoff leg of 1:57.06 in the 4 x 200m relay was a new Commonwealth record.

She was disappointed in her first Olympics in 2004 to miss out on the final of the 100m Freestyle, but still managed to be a part of the world record breaking 4 x 100m Freestyle relay squad as well as picking up a bronze in the 50m Freestyle.

She then had a sensational 2005 Telstra Short Course Championships meet, going on to smash the world 100m Freestyle record - twice - as well as winning the 50m Freestyle.

When she was 19 she became the third Australian women to hold the world record in the 100m Freestyle behind Dawn Fraser and Shane Gould.

She first started swimming when she was four years old.
