The first Australian to win a gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games was swimmer Stephanie Rice. She won the women's 400 individual medley in a world record time of 4.29.45. This first medal of the 2008 Olympics was also Australia's 400th summer Olympic medal. This was Rice's Olympic debut. She went on to win gold again in the 200m individual medley with a new world record time of 2 minutes 8.34 seconds. She then won her third gold medal as part of the 4 x 200 metre freestyle relay team.
