Camille Muffat (born October 28, 1989 in Nice, France)[1] is a French swimmer and is a three-time Olympic medalist. At the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, she won gold in the 400-meter freestyle, silver in the 200-meter freestyle, and bronze in the 4×200-meter freestyle relay.

2008 – 2011

At the 2008 French national championships, she and Joanne Andraca tied in the 400 m individual medley (IM) in a new French record of 4:38.23. At the 2009 French national championships, she set a new French record in the 200 m IM (2:09.34). At the 2008 Summer Olympics, she qualified to enter three events – the 200m individual medley, the 400m individual medley and the 4 × 200 m freestyle relay – but only qualified for the final of the relay (the team finished fifth).

2012 – present

At the 2012 Summer Olympics, she qualified to enter three events. She won the gold medal in the 400 m freestyle with a new Olympic record,[2] as well as the silver medal in the 200 m freestyle event. Also, her 4×200 m freestyle team won the bronze medal in a time of 7:47.49. [Camille Muffat (1:55.51); Charlotte Bonnet (1:57.78); Ophélie-Cyrielle Étienne (1:58.05); Coralie Balmy (1:56.15)]. She thus equalled Laure Manaudou's 2004 Olympics achievement of one gold, one silver and one bronze and also became only the third Frenchwoman after Micheline Ostermeyer and Manaudou to win three medals in a single summer or winter Olympic Games.

On 1 January 2013, Muffat was made a Knight (Chevalier) of the Légion d'honneur.[3]
