Nicole Livingstone was announced as the first brand ambassador for Salin Plus in September 2014. Her focus on respiratory health as a professional swimmer made her the perfect choice to help spread the word about the benefits of Salin Plus for use in the home.
After dreaming of being an Olympic swimmer as a child, Nicole went on to represent Australia at three Olympics. One of Australia’s greatest Backstrokers, she was a member of the Australian swimming team for twelve consecutive years from 1985 – 1996.
She holds the longest winning sequence of any Australian swimmer in history at the national titles, winning ten consecutive 100m Backstroke titles between 1987 and 1996. Nicole’s career achievements include a silver medal and two bronze medals from three Olympic appearances; six gold, two silver and a bronze from three Commonwealth Games and competing in six Pan Pacific Championships winning four gold two silver and one bronze medals. She also broke a world record in the 200m backstroke (short course) in 1992.
As a former professional swimmer competing at the Olympic level, I know that being proactive about your respiratory health is very important. It helps to ensure you, and your family, don’t suffer unnecessarily with symptoms like coughs, colds, sneezes, snoring and hay fever. That’s why I use Salin Plus every night in my room, and in my children’s rooms. It helps us all breathe easier which means a great night’s sleep and a happier household!
Nicole retired from competitive swimming in 1996 and began what has become a stellar career in television. Firstly with the Nine Network, in a variety of roles; from the host’s chair of their flagship sports programs Wide World of Sports and Sports Saturday, to hosting the Commonwealth Games and as an expert commentator/host with Nine’s Logie award winning swimming and surf life saving coverage.
Nicole is a member of the Executive of the Australian Olympic Committee, Victorian Olympic Council Vice President, as well as a Director of Swimming Australia.
Nicole is also kept busy as a mother of twins, Ella and Joshua, born in 2002 and Robinson in 2007.
