    Excerpts from Shane's official bio page (7/31/18):

     

    "An Australian legend in the swimming pool and the eldest competitor in Australian Survivor, Shane is sporting royalty and one of the world’s greatest female swimmers. 

    Between 1971 and 1973, she broke 11 world records in six different events. In the 1972 Olympics, Shane was, and still is, the only woman ever to win five individual medals: three gold in total, all in world record times, plus a silver and a bronze. 

    In 1972, Shane held every Freestyle World Record: 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m and also the 200 individual medley, an achievement which has never been matched. 

    “I’m not one to be proud of myself. I think being proud is a fashionable self-serving idea. I prefer to think about satisfying moments and those aren’t necessarily my sporting accomplishments. Parenting four children to be independent adults. Learning how to train my horses. Those are moments I cherish.” 

    Splitting her time between Sydney and Bicheno, Tasmania, Shane may be the eldest to arrive on the island but she is not going to let the young ones throw her off. 

    “I’m a realist and I know it’s not going to be easy, especially when I don’t know who my competition is yet but I have a one in 24 chance of winning. I’ll be playing my hardest and I want to be there at the end. I’ve been researching, training and feel like I’m as prepared as I can be.” 

    “Just because I’m in the Champions tribe doesn’t mean I am safe. I’m probably older than the rest but that won’t stop me. I’ve been through tough times and lived to tell the tale. That’s how I live my life and that’s how I’m going to finish on Survivor.”"
