On Saturday, Emily Seebohm stepped foot on the Olympic podium alongside fellow simmer Kaylee McKeown.
The two Aussies had just completed in the 200m backstroke final at the Tokyo Olympic Games. Seebohm winning bronze, McKeown gold.
But McKeown felt Seebohm "deserved to be on that gold medal podium just as much as I did" and invited her to stand side by side as the national anthem played.
"Em’s been around for so long and I’ve always spoken so highly of her, I speak of her highly for a reason," she said after the race.
