Beaten Get Even

No one likes to get beaten, even if it is to your best friend.

- Cate Campbell

Think Next Compare

I parade in next to no clothes every day. It's hard not to compare yourself to other people, but I think everyone is different, and that is something we should be celebrating.

- Cate Campbell

Children Like Favourites

Choosing between the 50 m and 100 m is like choosing between your children. I have favourites on different days.

- Cate Campbell

Chips Part Huge Part

For me, it's just as important to eat healthy as it is to go out and eat fish and chips with my friends because socialising, and being able to socialise, is a huge part of your general wellbeing.

- Cate Campbell

Love Against Even

All's fair in love and war and sport - even when you're fighting against your sister.

- Cate Campbell

Athlete Gold Medal Olympic

Every athlete wants to win an Olympic gold medal, and I'd be lying if I said that's not what I wanted.

- Cate Campbell

Dreaming Need Medals

I'm not dreaming of any podiums or any medals that I can put around my neck. I'm just focusing on what I need to do today in order to be better tomorrow.

- Cate Campbell

Career Right Reasons Very

Every time I reach a major milestone in my career, I expect it to make more of a difference than it does, and I guess that means I'm in the sport for the right reasons. I'm not in it to win it because winning can only last for so long, and it's a very fickle thing, sport.

- Cate Campbell

New Feels Addicted

I find that after every win, there is a new surge in motivation because it feels so good. I am addicted to winning. That sounds terrible, but it is true you are addicted to that feeling.

- Cate Campbell

Injuries Next About

Injuries aren't anything foreign to me. I am used to overcoming illness and injury; you can't complain about it. When you're standing up there on the blocks, it doesn't really matter: it's all about the next minute.

- Cate Campbell

Olympic Last Almost

At the Olympics, you have almost nothing to lose, but at the Olympic trials, you have everything to lose. You have the last four years of your life to lose.

- Cate Campbell

Racing Awful Lot Cent

I read a statistic that in horse racing, the favourite only wins 12 per cent of their races. I'm not comparing myself to a horse or saying I'm the favourite - although my sister would say I can nag an awful lot - but nothing is guaranteed in sport. Anyone can step up and take what you perceive to be your place in the final.

- Cate Campbell

Race Give Away

My job is to give 100 per cent so that I can walk away completely satisfied with the race I put together irrespective of placings.

- Cate Campbell

Inside Bit Telling

I tend to be that swimmer that doesn't look like she is trying, but is actually dying on the inside. It's a little bit unfortunate because people are, like, 'Can you just try harder?' I was, like, 'If you can see what's going on in my head right now, you wouldn't be telling me that.'

- Cate Campbell

Race Excited Rather

If you're scared to lose rather than excited to win, then that's the wrong way to approach a race.

- Cate Campbell

Giving Up I Think Very

It's about never giving up until your hand is on the wall. I think people who get complacent, who think that they are in front, a sloppy touch, can cost you that elusive medal, just as much as the people who are gunning for you. If you believe you can get there right to the very end, miracles do happen.

- Cate Campbell

Create Go Perform

My job isn't to create history; it's to go out there and perform at my best.

- Cate Campbell

Idea Caught Mental

People get caught up in the idea that health is just what you look like and what you eat, but your health is physical, emotional and mental. Who's to say eating that bowl of ice cream after training isn't going to help me psychologically and emotionally?

- Cate Campbell

Almost About Relaxing

The best swimmers are the ones that almost don't try the most... It's just about relaxing and enjoying it.

- Cate Campbell

Wheels Needs Rather

We've seen, time and again, when people focus on the outcome rather than what needs to be done to achieve a desirable result, then the wheels fall off.
