Olympic Gold Medallist Kyle Chalmers returns to Adelaide
Gold Olympic medallist Kyle Chalmers returned to his hometown Adelaide to a hero’s welcome, following an incredible performance in Rio 2016.
Chalmers told Jodie & Soda that he has been overwhelmed by the amount of support he’s received since his Olympic domination.
“When I was leaving the village I got a text from some friends from school who said they might be visiting me at the airport; I wasn’t really expecting the reception I received!”
Kyle’s father Brett Chalmers played AFL for Port Adelaide Football Club and the Adelaide Crows, and Kyle said it would be a dream to follow in his footsteps one day and do the same.
“That would be an absolutely dream come true… I’ve always wanted to be an AFL football player, especially having Dad who played for Port Adelaide Football Club and the Crows”
