Siobhán Haughey's Biography

Siobhán Haughey is Hong Kong’s first swimmer to win not one but two Olympic medals.

In the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics, Siobhán proudly took home an Olympic silver in the women’s 200-metre freestyle and women’s 100-metre freestyle categories. After this successful triumph, she went on to break the 200-metre freestyle world record and won two gold medals at the 2021 World Short Course Championships.

In 2022, Siobhán was the overall winner at the first stop of the Fina Swimming World Cup and won two gold medals in the second leg of the games. She was named “best of the best” at Hong Kong Sports Star Awards that same year.

To date, Haughey has broken 19 Hong Kong records and six Asian records. She won her first gold medal, at the young age of 16, at the World Junior Championships 2013. With that win, she also broke the meet record in the 100-metre freestyle category. In that same year, Siobhán went on to win two silver and five bronze medals at the East Asian Games. Making her Hong Kong’s most decorated athlete in a single East Asian Game.

Siobhán Haughey uses her voice to actively encourage the young in Hong Kong to get involved in sports. She believes “magic happens outside your comfort zone” and that it is important for kids to know that they can achieve anything, even if no one has done it before. Using herself as an example, she says, “just because no one from Hong Kong had won an Olympic medal in swimming before, didn’t mean I couldn’t do it,”

Being a popular public figure, Siobhán understands the mental toll that comes with fame and having to perform at a high level consistently. She speaks about her post-Olympic struggles with a positive mindset and works hard to overcome challenges in and out of the pool. Siobhán Haughey relates to the young and is a source of inspiration for many in Hong Kong.
