Head Above Water

Year released





Follows elite Australian swimmers Ian Thorpe AM, Bronte Campbell OAM, Kyle Chalmers OAM, as well as former-junior-champion-turned-international-musician, Cody Simpson in the lead up to the Games in July.


  • Season 1

Cast and crew

  • Ian Thorpe
  • Bronte Campbell
  • Kyle Chalmers
The series explores how these four swimmers deal with pressure in and out of the pool. As you might expect, their lives regularly feature grueling training sessions and personal sacrifices. Is going through this worth it in the long run? The team behind the doco had unrivalled access to all the four figures, so we can expect the series to be pretty revelatory.

Head Above Water follows Bronte Campbell and Kyle Chalmers as they prepare to qualify for the team to represent Australia this July. Meanwhile, Ian Thorpe looks back on his spectacular swimming career and contemplates what the future may hold, while Cody Simpson puts his music endeavours on hold and comes up with a plan to make it to the Games.

This isn't Prime Video's first Aussie docu-series with a focus on sports. The streaming service also previously released The Test: A New Era for Australia's Team and Making Their Mark, two shows that were received with both enthusiasm and acclaim. As a result, it's a safe bet that Head Above Water will follow into their footsteps.
