Tasmanian swimmer Ariarne Titmus will officially compete at the Tokyo Olympic Games, named as a member of Australia's team on Thursday night.
The 20-year-old golden girl qualified in the 200m, 400m and 800m disciplines after a stunning Olympic Trials meet in Adelaide, where she broke records in every final she competed in.
Battling ongoing shoulder soreness that kept her on the sidelines for several months, Titmus swam the second-fastest times ever in the 200 and 400 metres earlier in the week before breaking her own Australian record in the 800 on Thursday.
Tokyo will be Titmus' Olympic debut, joining 34 other swimmers in the side, with the team's Chef de Mission, Legana's Ian Chesterman, describing the selection as a great milestone.

"Tonight's selection caps a special week in the pool, with exceptional achievements from our athletes," Chesterman said.
"Swimming has such an incredible Olympic history for our country and this team is ready to build on that legacy with their own inspiring performances in Tokyo."
"Congratulations to all of the athletes, the coaches, support staff, friends and family who have been there every step of the way to help them realise their Olympic dream."
Swimming Australia head coach Rohan Taylor added he was pleased with the team's performances throughout the week-long event
"It's so great to be able to get back to quality racing at a meet like this and see our team perform so well," Taylor said.
"I feel we have strong team, and I'm particularly pleased with the strength of our relays, it shows the fantastic depth in this squad."
Coached by Dean Boxhall, Titmus trained with both Riverside and Launceston Aquatic before moving to Queensland to further her swimming dream in 2015.
Even then she was earmarked as a future Olympian and in five weeks time, she will realise that dream alongside fellow Tasmanians Georgia Baker, Richie Porte (cycling), Jake Birtwhistle (triathlon), Daniel Watkins (canoeing), Eddie Ockenden (hockey), Stewart McSweyn (athletics), Sarah Hawe (rowing) and Dion Kenzie (Paralympics), while rower Ciona Wilson was named reserve.
