Our champions! The incredible Aussie women who have won gold at Japan's 2020 Olympics

We're so proud of these talented athletes!

To say the female athletes representing Australia at Japan's 2020 Olympics have made our country proud is an understatement.
These resilient, determined, and humble athletes have knocked the competition out of the park - and out of the pool - with grace and skill.
Team Australia has won 14 gold medals (so far) which have placed us fourth on the medal board after the The Republic of China, United States and Japan, an incredible feat for our country.
Our female athletes have really thrived in water events, with Kaylee McKeown and Emma McKeon breaking records in the swimming.
Emma has accrued seven medals, with four gold to her name, which according to Yahoo!Sports makes her the first female swimmer "and second in any sport in history to win seven medals at one Olympic games."
However, that isn't the only record the 27-year-old is celebrating.
She has broken Ian Thorpe and Leisel Jones' records of winning nine medals, which is the most any Australian athlete had won - until Emma snagged her 11th this Olympics.
The success of our ladies is something Australia can brag about for the better part of forever as we continue to support our athletes and their efforts.
Here are the nine Australian women who have won gold at Japan's 2020 Olympics - so far.
