Fresh off capturing the hearts of the people of Launceston, Australia's newest Olympic star Ariarne Titmus is set to be honoured by the city in which she grew up.
Launceston council voted unanimously to bestow the 20-year-old with a key to the city, and rename the 50-metre competition pool at the Launceston Aquatic Centre - the one in which her Olympic dreams first festered - in her honour.
Such was the impression Titmus had on young swimmers in Launceston already, council decided it would also establish an annual Ariarne Titmus Swimming Scholarship at the aquatic centre.
As soon as Titmus had secured her second gold medal in Tokyo, the war drums started beating.
At first calls for the entire aquatic centre to be renamed started, and shortly thereafter the council came out and made it clear the golden girl of Launceston would receive her just desserts - just that it would take 60 days to work out how that would look.
When Titmus is handed the key in a Civic Square ceremony on September 17, she will become the sixth and youngest recipient - and the first female.
Mayor Albert van Zetten said there was never any doubt Launceston would recognise its newest star.
"She's such an inspiration and role model for young athletes and young women everywhere and the council is so proud of what she has achieved," he said.
"It's fitting that Ariarne's name will be associated with the same 50-metre pool she spent so many hours training in as a teenager in her early years."
With the ceremony for Titmus' acknowledgement just 18 days away, Mr van Zetten said there would not be time for the pool have its new official name, but said the renaming would be implemented as soon as possible.
More to come.
