Emily Seebohm (born June 5, 1992) Australian swimmer. He won the gold medal at the 2007 World Championships in Australia in the 4 x 100 mixed team final.

On March 6, 2008, Brisbane broke the Australian record with a 28.10 degree at the Catholic Schoolgirls Championships in a 50-meter backstroke. His degree is about one percent more than the world record of Li Yang's 28.09 world record. On March 22, 2008, Seebohm broke the world record for the 50 meter backstroke with a 27.95 degree at the 2008 Australian Swimming Championships. The old record belonged to Hayley McGregory of the United States at 28.00 seconds and broke this record 15 days ago on March 7, 2008. A day later, this record was broken again by the Australian Sophie Edington in the final race of the same championship with 27.67 seconds. Seebohm did not participate in the final because he wanted to focus on the 50m semi-finals and not the olympic branch. He was the first Australian to come down under a minute on his 100m backstroke and swung the fastest fifth spot of all time with a 59.78 rating. In the final race he scored 59.58 seconds and won the Olympics.
