An Australian TV host has shared a sweet throwback snap to social media. Do you know who it is?

It’s none other than Sylvia Jeffreys!

The media personality stunned fans with an old image from her school swimming days ahead of Nine Network’s celebrity race at the Australian Swimming Trials.

She captioned her post: ‘It’s been a few decades and many swimming cap evolutions since my last blue ribbon but I’m hoping my enormous feet still have some flipper force… because I refuse to be beaten by Karl.’

The beloved Today Extra host brought her A-game as she joined a vibrant mix of celebrities and sports legends in the Mixed 6x50m Freestyle Celebrity Relay on Wednesday.

‘My swimming career may have peaked in high school as 7th place at district championships, but with size 12 feet I have built-in flippers and I’m not afraid to use them,’ she said on the night. 

Jeffreys shares two sons with her Sky News Australia journalist husband Peter, the younger brother of Today show host Karl Stefanovic.

The couple tied the knot at the Ooralba Estate in Kangaroo Valley on April 1, 2017.

In February 2020, Sylvia and Peter, 42, welcomed their first son, Oscar.

Just eight months later, the TV presenter revealed she was pregnant with her second child, son Henry.

Last August, Sylvia revealed that despite her flourishing career, family remains her number one priority.

The TV presenter told The Daily Telegraph that she always makes time for the two toddler sons she shares with her husband.

‘I don’t take for granted the fact that I do manage to get quite a bit of balance in that respect in my life,’ she said.

‘Because more than anything, I just want to be with my kids, especially while they’re this age. I know that’s the most important thing in life,’ she went on.
