Our celebs database about Karen Phillips
Raised in Nowra, New South Wales, Phillips was selected to represent Australia in the 200-metre butterfly and 400-metre individual medley, but was not expected to do well, barely scraping into the final of the 200-metre butterfly, and narrowly missing the final of the 400-metre individual medley. Although she was left far behind by the United States' Mary T. Meagher, she swum a personal best of 2 minutes 10.56 seconds to claim the silver medal, although Meagher was 7 metres ahead.
Two years later at the 1986 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh, Scotland, Phillips enjoyed more success, winning the silver medal in the 200-metre butterfly.
She was the inaugural winner of the Australian Institute of Sport Athlete of the Year in 1983–84.
