From Launceston to Port Macquarie and up to Noosa, there is a growing legion of Ariarne Titmus fans around Australia.
And it's not hard to see why after the 20-year-old swimming sensation backed up her remarkable 400-metre freestyle final win over American Katie Ledecky earlier this week with another golden performance on July 28.
Barely two days after officially arriving on the Olympic stage, Titmus claimed gold in the 200-metre freestyle final and 10-year-old Port Macquarie prodigy Bianca Harrison was glued to her television screen.
The St Agnes Primary School student is one of thousands of budding swimmers who dare to dream about Olympic Games success.
"I really liked it. (Ariarne's) fast and she's good at swimming and she inspires me," she said.
Alongside Kaylee McKeown's gold medal performance in the 100-metre backstroke final already this week, the Australians are already inspiring the next generation.
"(Bianca) just likes watching these Olympians be successful," Bianca's mum Tanya said.
"She knows Ariarne's originally from Tasmania, so it's not like she's from Sydney or Melbourne so that inspired her."
Titmus also grew up in a regional city of Launceston which is not too dissimilar to Port Macquarie.
With Brisbane starting their preparations to host the Games in 2032, the Port Macquarie Swimming Club junior squad member has already been swimming for seven years.
"I liked it because it's competitive and I like winning," the youngster said when asked about why she took up the sport.
More at home in freestyle events, Bianca went to the junior state titles in Sydney last year as well as representing her school at PSSA level.
There's a bit of hard work that's required, but there's also a lot of hard work that goes into Olympic gold medal performances.
You've got to start somewhere.
"In winter I train two times a week and in summer three or four times a week. The sessions go for an hour and just mainly in the afternoon," she said.
Mum Tanya said her daughter, however, has already started to make enquiries about when she can start morning squad sessions.
When asked what she thought about the Olympics heading north of the border in just over 11 years, she has already started to make plans.
"I felt very happy and I'm going to go to the Olympics in Brisbane," she said.
