Giaan Rooney goes from Olympic competitor to reporter as a member of the Nine Network team at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver.
Rooney, who led off the 4x100m medley relay team which won the gold medal at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, has settled into a media career with Nine since retiring from the pool.
Rooney stamped her mark on international swimming at the age of 15, winning gold in the 100m backstroke at the 1998 Commonwealth Games. At the 2000 Sydney Olympics she won two silver medals in the relay events, before her crowning gold medal swim in Athens four years later.
Rooney displayed her versatility with a stunning 200m freestyle victory at the World Championships in Japan in 2001 and went on to win silver medals at the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games in the 50m and 100m backstroke.
Since joining the Nine Network she has had numerous on-screen roles. She has been a presenter on What's Good for You, Getaway and Postcards, a reporter and commentator at the World Swimming Championships, co-host of Wide World of Sport, host of Battlefronts, a contestant on Dancing On Ice, weather presenter on TODAY, and a regular face with the network's coverage of Melbourne's Spring Racing Carnival.
At Vancouver, Rooney joins Nine's strong team of reporters – including swimming great Grant Hackett – to bring viewers all the colour and news from the Winter Olympics.
