Olympic swimming gold medalist, world champion and former world record holder, Michael Klim, is gearing up to take on the 21.5km marathon Swim the Gold Coast event with his teammates later this month.
It will be third time lucky for Klim, who’s had his eye on the Coolangatta to Surfers Paradise swim for the last few years, only for the event not to go ahead in an unlucky series of events.
The two-time gold medallist has been suffering symptoms for years, but recently saw a medical professional who was able to give him some clarity and diagnose him with the rare disorder.
“I’m really looking forward to the swim after a bit of bad luck with this event in past years because of the pandemic and the weather,” said Klim.
Lindy Rama is his partner.
Personal life. Klim married Lindy Rama, a former model and fashion entrepreneur, in April 2006.
Rama (known in Bali as Anak Agung) is a Balinese princess, being the niece of Ida Cokorde Pamecutan XI, the king of Denpasar. The couple have two daughters and a son.
Lindy Rama-Ellis (née Klim) has called Indonesia home for the past 10 years, travelling to Melbourne sporadically to visit friends and family.
Now Lindy, the ex-wife of Australian swimmer Michael Klim, has revealed the heartbreaking reason she chooses to live in Bali.
