Amie Thompson (2013)

Amie Thompson (2013) is an Artistic Swimmer who competed in the Artistic Swimming team event at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. In 2021, Amie was co-captain of the Australian Artistic Swimming team at the (covid-19 postponed) 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. She took part in both the Team and the Duet events.

Amie enrolled at MLC School in 2009 into Year 8, finishing with the HSC in 2013.

In Year 10 in 2011, she was selected as a reserve for the 2011 FINA World Championships Team, and while in Year 12, she represented Australia at the 2013 World Championships – and still managed to achieve one of the year’s top ATARs. At the 2013 Speech Night, Amie was awarded an MLC School Blue for sport.

It was her MLC School Swimming teacher who first suggested that Amie try out Artistic Swimming (then known as Synchronised Swimming). Just eight years after making this change, she was part of the team selected to represent Australia at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
