The athlete is not shy about putting her body on display, having modelled for lingerie line Sapph since her 2007 retirement.

Ms De Bruijn made her swimming debut in 1991 at the World Aquatics Championships where she won bronze as part of the relay team, taking gold with the same team at the European LC Championshipslater that year.

At her Olympic debut, in 1992, she finished 8th in both the 100m freestyle and the 4x100m relay, choosing not to compete at the following tournament.

She returned at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia, where she won gold at the 50m and 100m freestyle and at the 100m butterfly, setting world records in all three events.

At the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece, she successfully defended the 50m freestyle medal, becoming the oldest person ever to achieve an individual gold medal in swimming, aged 31.

The overall record was surpassed by Anthony Ervin at Rio in 2016 as he won the 50m freestyle at the age of 36, but Ms De Bruijn retains the record for oldest woman to win an individual swimming gold.
