Olympic medalist swimmer Cate Campbell – who made national headlines during last month’s Australian Swimming Trials – joins the 9Network as a swimming expert. She will also be a swimming expert for the 9Network’s Paralympics coverage. 

“While I might have missed out on being part of the Australia Olympic team and competing in Paris, I am so excited to still be heading over the Games as part of the Channel 9 broadcast team,”

– said Cate.

“This will be the first Olympic Games I have watched since Athens 2004 and I can’t wait to cheer on our swimmers as they hit the pool. I hope Australia falls in love with our swimmers and I look forward to shining a spotlight on the incredible talent we have on the Olympic team.”

Highly regarded sports broadcaster Gerard Whateley will be the 9Network’s voice of athletics, taking on the high profile role during a time of renaissance for our track and field team.

“I’m most looking forward to Track and Field in the iconic Stade De France, which will be the venue for Paris’ biggest sporting and entertainment events,”

– said Gerard.

“After the main stadium in Tokyo was largely empty, the athletes will this time compete in front of 80,000-strong crowds. And while athletics has a galaxy of stars, the face of the sport will be determined by the races at these Olympic Games.”

The Games of the XXXIII Olympiad will unite Australians like never before across an unrivalled platform of television, streaming, Stan Sport, digital publishing and audio, ensuring that viewers, listeners and readers feel like they are in the ultimate front-row seat to every sport and every venue.
