The stunning success of Ariarne Titmus could land her two major honours under a proposal to be considered by Launceston councillors.
Deputy mayor Danny Gibson will table a motion at the next council meeting to consider naming the 50-metre competition pool at the Launceston Leisure and Aquatic Centre in Titmus' honour.
The motion also proposed bestowing her with the key to the city.
Titmus captured the heart of the nation after a barnstorming 400 metre performance which saw her become the first Tasmanian to claim a solo gold medal at an Olympics.
She showcased it was no fluke and backed it up in the 200 metre freestyle with electrifying finish which saw rewrite the olympic record time on the way to another gold medal.

Titmus also notched a bronze medal in team 4x200-metre freestyle relay where Australia was bested by America and China.
Cr Gibson outlined in the motion that he hoped Titmus' triumphs will inspire the next generation of Launceston swimmers and athletes to aim for a similar level of success.
"In celebrating Ariarne's achievements, we as a city will provide inspiration and encouragement to others to follow their dreams in pursuit of their chosen endeavour," he wrote.
Mayor Albert van Zetten took a moment at the July 29 council meeting to praise her achievements.
"This goes to show that if you believe you can do something you can 100 per cent do it if you work for it," he said.
"I think that is a great statement to anybody out there that wants to aspire to do something to be great."
The key to the city is a rare honour which has been awarded to five Launcestonians including cyclist Richie Porte, yachtman Ken Gourlay, former Australian cricket captain Ricky Ponting, boxing champion Daniel Geale and composer Peter Sculthorpe AO OBE.
