Allianz recruits champion swimmer as Olympic ambassador

Allianz Australia has added Australian gold medallist and champion swimmer Mollie O’Callaghan as its newest Olympic ambassador.

Ms O’Callaghan joins the Allianz team alongside fellow athletes Cate Campbell, Madison de Rozario, and Nic Beveridge, as well as the Australian Steelers, ahead of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024, which begin in late July. 

The 19-year-old swimmer won three medals, including two gold, at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and currently holds four world record times, set at last year’s World Aquatics Championship, where she became the first woman to win gold medals in both 100m and 200m freestyle events.

“I’m proud to stand beside a group of amazing role models and hope that, as an Allianz Ambassador, I can hopefully inspire more young athletes to make their own mark and set goals of their own,” she said. 

“Preparing for the Olympic Games is no easy feat – a lot of hard work and dedication goes into it. I’m fortunate to have a great support network around me, and being a part of the Allianz Ambassador team means I can learn and get ready with some of our nation’s best athletes.”

Allianz serves as the official insurance partner for the event and currently has more than 110 athlete ambassadors.

“All of us at Allianz are thrilled to have Mollie join the Allianz family as she takes on the next chapter of her career,” Allianz Australia’s Chief General Manager, Consumer Shez Ford said. “We’re committed to supporting her dreams to compete at the Olympic Games in Paris 2024.”
